Marbles Kids Museum recently demolished a former speedometer shop at 101 S. Blount St. to make way for a colorful public plaza the museum is calling “Color Pop Corner.”
The area is located at the intersection of Blount and Morgan streets and will be transformed into a gateway to Marbles and the Moore Square District with a mural, colorful concrete grid and urban plantings.
The project is the first in a series of enhancements at Marbles Kids Museum this spring, as the museum takes early steps to expand capacity and prepares to host the Association of Children’s Museums international conference at the Raleigh Convention Center in May.
Design of a major expansion will begin later this year, with construction expected to start in 2020.
