PHILADELPHIA, PA (December 2019) — After major success this past summer, Photo Pop Philly is back this holiday season! The first ever holiday installment of the pop-up opened in November and includes more interactive art than ever before. Photo Pop is ready for guests to immerse themselves in the joyful enchantment of Winter Wonderland. Over 15 local Philadelphia artists, some new and some returning, have presented ideas of what “Winter Wonderland” means to them in the exhibit which includes over 30 installations and murals.
Photo Pop Philly proudly announced its newest partner, the Phillies, this past month. Photo Pop's Operations and Technology Director, Andrew Stapp, created an amazing motion capture experience for guests to enjoy that incorporates the latest partnership. With this installation, guests can participate in an interactive winter experience that makes you feel like you’re right in front of Citizens Bank Park. "When I created the motion capture experience, I envisioned guests enjoying the best part of winter; the snow! Merging snowmen and baseball together was a no brainer," explained Stapp. Stapp is also the owner of Xplore VR Studios, a Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality development studio.
The Phillies Snowmen aren't the only new additions popping up for December. In Photo Pop’s newly designed motion capture room, guests can dance as all kinds of holiday characters in various winter settings.
With the addition of this Phillies themed motion capture experience, the winter season is sure to be a home run at Winter Wonderland. As the oldest, continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in American professional sports, Photo Pop is proud to be partnering with a team that has such strong roots in Philadelphia.
Photo Pop Philly is open to the public from now until January 5th. General admission tickets are on sale now at PhotoPopPhilly.com. Connect with Photo Pop by visiting theirwebsite and following along on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. For media inquiries, please contact Molly@PhillyPRGirl.com.
