Starting in 2017, the Folger has hosted several staff-curated "pop-up" exhibitions. These are temporary exhibits which feature around 15 items from the Folger collection on display for only a few hours. Pop-up exhibitions allow us to display some of our lesser-known or -circulated items, and also give staff outside of the Exhibitions department a glimpse at what curating an exhibit is like.

All exhibitions so far have taken place in the Deck B Seminar Room.
