Just when you thought the candy-themed pop-up art market was pretty oversaturated in San Francisco, another one ropes us in with the promise of colorful candy-themed experiences. On the heels of the Instagram-famous Color Factory, the (now permanent) Museum of Ice Cream, and Candytopia comes a new interactive exhibit dedicated to the greatest candy of all ... gummy bears!
The Gummy Bear Museum is a temporary, gummy bear-themed art gallery where all the works are inspired by and made out o gummy bears. Visitors can taste all kinds of chewy bears, admire original gummy bear art from 15 talented artists, and even create their own gummy bear flavor.
Dates and location are still unknown; but the Gummy Bear museum plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign for the museum next week. They're also partnering with non-profit Meds & Food for Kids to raise enough funds to donate a container of more than 170,000 Plumpy’Nuts (ready to eat therapeutic food bars) for children in Haiti suffering from severe acute malnutrition.
