SCAASI Pop-Up Museum Exhibition at Johnson & Wales University in North Miami, FL
What is a Pop-up Museum Exhibit?
It has been recorded that the concept of the Pop-up Museum developed in the 1990s. A pop-up museum can be defined as a short term exhibit existing in a temporary space. Pop-up museum exhibits are usually displayed in non-traditional spaces that are neither museum facilities nor art galleries. Some exhibits designated as pop-ups have been mounted in places as varied as community centers or walk-in closets. Simply, this type of exhibit “pops-up” for a brief period then it may move to another location. Hence, the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History's (MLFH) Pop-Up Museum Exhibit is a 48-hour display of Arnold Scaasi couture dresses displayed for a short-term in a non-museum space. The Scaasi display has been mounted in the Recreation Center at Johnson & Wales University in North Miami, Florida. The Recreation Center also serves as the student laundry room which was transformed into a temporary museum gallery with the use of black and red fabric draping and a real red carpet. The color red is Scaasi's trademark design.
