Foodseum is Popping Up at Block 37


We can't believe we finally get to announce the best news ever: our first pop-up exhibit, The Hot Dog and Encased Meat of the World, has a home! We're popping up at Block 37 in the Loop on September 19!

You're building a museum in 30 days, you ask? That's right. And we couldn't be more excited. The Foodseum team will be working around the clock in preparation for the grand opening on Saturday, September 19. Here's a sneak peek of a rendering of the second floor space. 

We couldn't have done this without all of your help and support since the launch of our Kickstarter. Now we can finally #buildfoodseum and we can't wait to show you the final product. Stay turned for more details on the grand opening festivities.


And let the 30-day countdown begin!
