Popps Packing12138 St Aubin St, Hamtramck, MI 48212, USA
Popps Packing is an artist-‐run neighborhood-‐based nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by husband and wife artists, Faina Lerman and Graem Whyte.
Our mission is to create impactful arts programming and foster cultural exchange between local and international artist communities while leveraging the unique features of our region, neighborhood, and personal practices.
Our programs include regular gallery exhibitions that provide local artists a platform to showcase new works, a robust residency program that welcomes national and international artists into our community, and regular workshops, artists talks, community potlucks and other and public events.
Our approach includes a philosophical reinterpretation of blight, not as an affliction, but a starting point that provides raw materials and inspiration for performances, traditional and nontraditional installations, and architectural interventions within the surrounding neighborhood.
