PopUp West Ninth

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Developed by studioMAIN and Create Little Rock, Pop Up in the Rock is a rapid community development project that focuses on illustrating underdeveloped potential in local city areas.

The next Pop Up event will take place on West Ninth Street on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The PopUp West Ninth event will focus on Little Rock’s Historic West Ninth Street and will span from the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) at Ninth and Broadway to Dreamland Ballroom at Ninth and State and across the State Street overpass to the campus of Philander Smith.

PopUp West Ninth hopes to encourage pedestrian and bicycle traffic between Philander Smith College and West Ninth Street via the South State Street overpass, thereby bridging the gap that originally unraveled the urban fabric of the area.

Inspired by community feedback and the rich history of West Ninth, PopUp in the Rock hopes to demonstrate the district’s potential for a vibrant future.
