Pop Up Art in the Exchange is inspired by the Chicago Pop-Up Art Loop, which “transforms empty storefronts into a moveable feast of public art galleries and exhibits.”

Introduced in the Exchange District, Winnipeg, in 2011 – the initiative converts vacant retail estate into a temporary art space to create energy, excitement and additional foot traffic in the cultural Mecca of the city.
