Pop-Up: Peek Push and Pull Exhibit Opening at Center for the Arts

(Last Updated On: July 28, 2021)

The Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Pop-Up: Peek, Push, & Pull exhibition brings the imaginative, three-dimensional world of pop-up books to the center’s Roush Gallery, July 29 – September 2.

The unique display of books from a private collection showcases the text, illustrations and engineering that expand the books’ sensory impact beyond simply reading the story. The exhibition is sponsored by Dr. Tee & Dana Reeve. A public reception at the center will open the show, July 29, beginning at 5:00 p.m.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Neva Lomason Library and the Center for the Arts will present Story Time, July 30, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at the center. The event is aimed at children, ages 4 – 7, and activities include story and craft time.

Also inspired by the exhibition is Gallery Play: Make Your Own Pop-Up Illustrations, a one-day workshop for youth and adults on August 21. Participants will learn to turn their drawings into three-dimensional works of art. The workshop will be conducted in three age-related sessions: Ages 8 – 12: 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.; ages 13 – 17: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. and ages 18+: 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. For more information or to register, visit carrolltonarts.com or call (770) 838-1083.
