Atlanta Is Getting A Pop-Up Art Experience Straight Out Of A Dream Next Month
We promise you're not ready.
This article has been updated with new information.
Calling all creatives - an incredible, new art installation is coming your way next month. Refinery29 is blessing the city with "29 Rooms: Expand Your Reality." In short, it's the most breathtaking art experience that combines visual art, dance, fashion, politics, and more. This pop-up art museum in Atlanta is the most thought-provoking exhibit you'll ever see.
We’re giving you ample time to prepare for the pop-up art of your dreams, which opens for an 11-day run on August 29.
It wouldn't be fair to label this interactive experience as just a museum because it's that and so much more. There are (quite literally) 29 individual rooms, each delivering something completely unique. Access to each room is included in the price of a general admission ticket. We're giving you a sneak peek of some of the most popular rooms.
You Are Magic
Bri Luna, owner of The HoodWitch, is bringing her magical crystal cave to the A. The rose quartz and obsidian-filled room is meant to help you acknowledge the good and bad within yourself, while Bri herself directs you with pre-recorded affirmations.
Welcome to the room of nostalgia, complete with a hamburger phone, an embarrassing amount of fuzziness, and the same J-Lo and Spice Girls posters that probably adorned your wall in the '90s. You can even play Mario Kart on the Nintendo 64. Mind = blown.
Songstress Kali Uchis is proving she's more than solely a musical mind. She collaborated on this thought-provoking room that sports multiple doors to dream-like scenarios.
We can't spoil all the surprises, but that's the magic that only 4 rooms are guaranteed to bring. Imagine what else there is to see in the other 25 rooms. *thinking emoji*
Beyond sheer creativity, what sets this exhibit apart from others is the activism incorporated within the art. There is a partnership in place with the ACLU for the Atlanta exhibit, so expect to see art for a cause.
This event is the perfect opportunity to get glammed out, take pictures, and connect with fellow creatives in the city. We promise you've never seen anything like this.
