The South Austin Popular Culture Center

The South Austin Popular Culture Center (SouthPop) is a Texas 501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation dedicated to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting art and memorabilia that reflect Austin's eclectic contributions to popular culture worldwide.

SouthPop champions Austin artists who were mainly responsible for "weird" Austin. The museum is the subject of many articles in the Austin Chronicle, who in 2004 distinguished the museum as the "Best Place to Art Trip."[1]

The New York Times included SAMOPC in a Frugal Traveler video.[2]
