LOGAN SQUARE — Artists are raising money for city museums with a pop-up marketplace, complete with a mini museum of its own, later this month at Emporium.

The Museum Market will feature goods from local artists, special events and a pop-up museum on July 21. Attendees will be able to touch taxidermied animals from the Specimen Museum, get their photos taken at a booth, shop, grab drinks and more.

The artists will sell taxidermy, plants, ceramics, jewelry, vintage clothing and more. They’ll donate 15 percent of their sales to a local museum, with the Field Museum, National Museum of Mexican Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art among those who will benefit.

Attendance is free and open to anyone 21 or older. The event runs noon-6 p.m. Sunday at Emporium, 2363 N. Milwaukee Ave.
