NYC, get ready for another fabulously immersive experience to hit the city this summer. Next month, the sweet and totally Instagrammable Candytopia will finally make its way over to New York from the West Coast.
candy stylist Candy Queen Jackie Sorkin, the pop-up is a whimsical world dedicated to candy—if you’ve seen Katy Perry’s California Gurls video, it’s a lot like that! The space “celebrates the vibrant colors and flavors of our favorite sugary delights through a series of interactive art installations in over a dozen environments, from flying unicorn pigs to a marshmallow tsunami,” according to their site.
Unlike most museums, everything here can be touched! Items at their fourth month Santa Monica installation included things like a pool of “marshmallows,” Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Andy Warhol paintings, and statues like Rodin’s The Thinker, all completely reimagined as candy artwork. Additionally, you can certainly expect to find some themed rooms designed for you to snap those perfect photos for to share on Instagram!
Celebs like Wiz Khalifa, Drew Barrymore, Nicky Rothschild (aka Nicky Hilton), and Kelli Berglund are only a few of many who have indulged their sweet tooth and social media feeds at Candytopia.
The pop-up is scheduled to open on August 15 at Penn Plaza, with pre-sale tickets going on sale July 17! Check out their website for updates and ticket details, Candytopia.com.
Where: 145 W 32nd Street
Tickets: $34 for adults
