CHEERS - To "pop-up" museums. Fulton County Historian Samantha Hall-Saladino wants to introduce the county to what's known as a "pop-up" museum. A pop-up museum is a temporary exhibit created by people who show up to participate in it. The organizer chooses a theme and venue and invites people to bring an object to share at the exhibit, which often lasts for only a few hours. Hall-Saladino wants to help bring a pop-up museum to the Gloversville Farmers Market on Aug. 23. If that goes well, she will offer the temporary display at other events and sites. The idea has worked in other places, and we're sure it can work here. We look forward to seeing the exhibit at the farmers market, and hopefully, other local sites as well. It would be something interesting for local people to be a part of.
