Photo Pop Philly is returning. Last year, the colors red, white & blue tied the art exhibit together. 2019 theme is Sweet Paradise.

Last May, a pop-up exhibit opened with red, white and blue Instagrammable art from local artists. On Friday, May 17, Photo Pop Philly will return, but with a new theme and at a new location for 2019.

All of the new selfie-welcoming murals and installations – there will be more than 25 – will illustrate the theme "Sweet Paradise." Artwork by 10 local artists will be featured.
