A Pop-up Gallery that Transforms Vacant Storefronts

Mobile Design Box, a community outreach initiative aimed at forming a new creative interface between Milwaukee and the School via a pop-up gallery, continues to occupy almost 4000 square feet of vacant retail space donated by Mandel Group, Inc., at the North End. Four times a year Mobile Design Box hosts a new exhibit that pairs a School initiative with an active member of the creative community. One benefit of these partnerships hosted at the Mobile Design Box is the public promotion of the agency of design.
