Help Us Build a Pop-Up Museum Oct. 3!

We invite everyone to participate in a Wings and Wheels-themed “Pop-Up Museum” on Friday, October 3 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.

A pop-up museum is a temporary exhibit created by people who show up with objects to display and share – sort of like a community show and tell.

If you would like to participate, bring any object that fits the Wings and Wheels theme to the Museum Friday, October 3, between 5 pm and 8 pm.

There will be blank labels available for you to fill out with information about whatever it is you are sharing. You can write about how this possession came to be yours or how it is meaningful to you. Then you put your object and label on one of the display tables and stay to share stories and information with other participants and visitors for as long as you like. By 8:00 everyone packs their objects away and takes them home.

It was presented to Lewis M. Shreve and later donated to the museum and the people of the Wenatchee Valley by John L. Shreve.
