OnMilwaukee.com Article about the Washington Heights Artists Front Yard Pop-Up shares our story about how the Front Yard Pop-Ups came to be and where they are going. Read the article here.

All of us are grateful to have survived 2020 and are thankful for all the shoppers that supported the pop-ups last year. This year is looking better for artists and makers with more events taking place but unfortunately some of the largest area events all of us look forward to and depend on most for our businesses are not yet happening this summer.

Each artist/maker derives part or all of their income from their art by selling it at events, art fairs and street fairs. When you attend the Washington Heights Artists Front Yard Pop-Up you are buying local, buying handmade, buying from people you know, and buying from self-employed micro-business owners who are part of your community.

Make your purchases directly with each maker using cash, credit card or other contact free payment choices (varies by each artist).

SHOPPING GUIDELINES:
• Each pop-up takes place on the private property of a resident. Please be respectful of their property, leaving no trash behind and cleaning up after your pet (if you bring one along).
• Children should be supervised by adult/parent/caregiver while shopping and look with their eyes, not their hands
• Well behaved dogs always welcome! Pets must be leashed and under your control at all times. Please clean up after you pet if you bring one along. Respect others. Please be a responsible pet owner and know that not everyone loves dogs.
