We are a roaming art gallery, concert hall and group of friends! Santa Cruz Pop-up Art Party sets up temporary art gallery and community space then generally only stays up for 2-10 hours. We encourage artists and art lovers alike to come and participate in our temporary community event experience. You can find us at events throughout Santa Cruz County, and on the web. Membership to the art party is free, if you have a love of art, a deep seeded desire for community, or just want to be part of a fun new project, then the Santa Cruz Pop-Up Art Party is for you! My goal with Santa Cruz Art Party, is to create a "Living Room" community experience in public spaces. I look forward to meeting you soon, Jon
