The thriving culture and aesthetics of cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Miami seem to be the hub for perfect “instagrammable” pictures.  Although the City of Brotherly Love demonstrates the marvelous facets of city life, it has fallen behind in the aspect of providing the perfect opportunity for Instagram-worthy photos.

This Memorial Day, PR Girl has teamed up with Visit Philadelphia to present Photo Pop, the city’s first pop-up exhibit of its nature. Photo Pop Philly essentially brought together 12 local artists to Walnut Street to curate an interactive art exhibit with five rooms of unique backdrops. Artists include These Pink Lips, Amberella, Nero, Martha Rich, Get Up,  and Michael Lambui.

Open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, tickets cost $20, with the average person spending about 45 minutes inside the exhibit. Drawing from similar Instagram-friendly pop-ups that are gaining attention in sizable cities, founder Kate Marlys was inspired to fill the gap Philadelphia was missing.

We arrived at Photo Pop right when it opened on a Saturday morning, so we had the entire store to ourselves for the first twenty minutes. The staff members were floating around the rooms and were quick to offer help in taking photos for us. Although there were five rooms, the pop-up is about the size of a small clothing store. Since each of the rooms were not that large, it is fairly easy to go through all of the exhibits, so I would recommend going with a group of people.
