Pop-up museums come to Westfield Broward

There’s a new part of the mall to explore while doing last-minute holiday minute shopping. And another to experience after the holidays are over.

Earlier this month, Westfield Broward in Plantation debuted the Young At Art Museum pop-up. Located near LensCrafters at the northwest entrance, the go-at-your-own-pace museum features never seen before, state-of-the-art installations, coupled with YAA members’ favorite exhibitions from the past. Visitors will teleport into 13 experimental maximalist exhibitions that can all be documented through a mirror selfie. Plus, all exhibitions will feature art projects and educational lessons accompanied with common core standards.

In January, the Island SPACE (Society for the Promotion of Artistic and Cultural Education) Caribbean Museum pop-up (pictured above) will span 5,500 square feet at the northeast main entrance. The museum tells the story of the Caribbean from indigenous people, the colonial period, emancipation, to independence. Displays will explore arts and entertainment such as rumba, reggaeton, calypso, soca, TV, literature, and sports. Visitors will also learn about notable expatriates and people of Caribbean heritage such as Vice President-elect Sen. Kamala Harris, U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton, and Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman elected to the U.S. Congress.

“This year, we feel it’s more important than ever to provide local artists and organizations with the opportunity to showcase their work,” said Westfield Broward General Manager Angel Cabrera. “With our pop-up museums, we’re looking forward to encouraging guests and locals of all ages to enjoy interactive art experiences, as well as learn more about the rich Caribbean culture.”
