THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Bright yellow bicycles are popping up all over downtown Thomasville in preparation for the Center for Arts' annual exhibition. 

The bikes raise awareness for the month-long exhibition called FLAUNT Pop it Up!

It celebrates Thomasville's developing creative district by bringing art, music, food, and shopping to visitors and locals. 

Public Art Director Darlene Crosby Blackman said, "You wouldn't recognize Jackson Street if you had been here a month ago.  But as a result of FLAUNT 2014 Pop It Up!, we have pop-up shops, performances, cafes."

Blackman said the idea for FLAUNT came after locals were asked what changes they wanted to see in the downtown area. 

FLAUNT kicks off on September 5 with an opening night party.
