Brought to you by Art Lab Fort Collins, Pop Up Art Carts are a way for local artists to sell their work directly to the public in Old Town Square, hassle-free and commission-free.

Big thanks to the Downtown Development Authority for being such gracious hosts. Pop Up Carts will be popping up through the end of September. Events are FREE to approved artists. Sales are handled by the artists with NO commission fees. Artist remit their own sales taxes.

Join the movement — become a Pop Up Artist

Interested in becoming one of the artists bringing art to the streets of Old Town with your very own Pop Up Art Cart? Visit the guidelines and resources pageFill out the Pop Up Art Cartist application. Participants are hand selected based on quality, innovation, and originality. New artists will be added throughout the Art Cart season.

What does a Pop Up Art Cart look like? Just about anything! Got an old typewriter table? Use it. Is woodworking your thing? Build yourself a beautiful, beechwood art cart. Each artist creates their own, one-of-a-kind cart. The parameters are minimal: 1) the cart must be people-powered, 2) have wheels and, 3) fit through the front door of Art Lab, 4) consider lighting — Pop Up Art Carts will be out after dark.
