©POP Gallery, the pre-eminent Detroit pop culture showcase for over a decade, launching pad for some of the world’s most influential and important visual artists of the last 20 years, home to some of the Midwest's most exhilarating exhibitions and events, one of the country’s first galleries dedicated to a then brand new “lowbrow” aesthetic, and the halls where pilgrim hipsters came to worship at the feet of the culture-clerics, was humbly and appropriately born as a small but trendy shop in Royal Oak, a tony suburb of Detroit, within the cloisters of a renovated old church. Here the original impetus was selling rock and roll poster art and graphics, Kustom Kulture and vintage visual memorabilia, but soon ©POP burst rather ceremoniously into public and media awareness when world-renown allegorical Cartoon Surrealist, Robert Williams was chosen for the gallery's debut exhibit, "Grab Yer Ankles, Detroit". A media-frenzy ensued, instantly embossing the familiar "cpopyright" logo into the Detroit cultural psyche, and quickly ©POP became THE gallery in which to be shown or be seen. ©POP exposed and promoted the unbelievable range of visual talent fermenting in this "New Munich". Soon local first-timers with names like Niagara, Glenn Barr, Mark Dancey, Tom Thewes, Tristan Eaton and many more soon-to-be nationally famous Motor City artists would find their first successful exhibits in the basement of an old church. By 1997, some of America's leading cutting-edge art and culture journals such as "Juxtapoz", "Your Flesh", "Art Alternatives" and "Details" trumpeted the gallery and the artists who were emerging from this suburban, "underground-zero" into national prominence.
