EMP has changed its name to Museum of Popular Culture, or MoPOP for short. Now, the free Pop Culture Party this Saturday, November 19th, makes sense – it’s a celebration of the new moniker.
According to a letter from Patty Isacson Sabee, CEO and Director, Museum of Pop Culture:
“It is with great excitement that I write to announce that as of Saturday, November 19, EMP will officially be named Museum of Pop Culture—MoPOP. As you know, our museum encompasses so much more than music, and as we look toward the future, MoPOP reflects the entirety of the museum and where we are headed.”
It makes sense, as EMP has long had many exhibits that go beyond music to include science fiction, fantasy, horror, fashion, sports, video games, and art. MoPOP will continue with the same mission: “to bring genuine human experience and perspective to pop culture through our exhibits, programs, and events that invite exploration and inspire creativity.”
Head over to MoPOP this Saturday for a free all-day celebration of pop culture and the new name for one of our local museums.
