The Creeping Museum. Enamel lapel pins designed by independent artists, with the proceeds supporting wonderful causes.

About Us

The Creeping Museum, born in a North Portland laundromat in the spring of 2016, is the nonprofit creative vision and labor of love of two friends trying to save the world with art.

Our mission is to help independent creators share small works of strange and unusual art with a wider audience, while supporting some of our favorite causes. We believe every lapel is a potential gallery, and that there’s a curator creeping inside each and every one of us.

The Creeping Team

Alyssa (@chaletpancakes) has two decades of experience as a content strategist, producer, and designer, and has a graduate degree in museum studies with a focus on collections management. She’s been fortunate enough to work with some of her favorite cultural institutions including the National Civil Rights Museum, MoMA, Sesame Workshop, and National Geographic. In addition to creepy art, she loves books and coffee, scary movies, cuckoo clocks, and making pictures with thread.

Layla (@hircumvetulum) is an artist, hair stylist, and salon owner. Raised by artists, and trained as a printmaker/bookbinder, she’s been “making” in one form or another her whole life. She loves art (hi-brow to no-brow), music ( ’50’s r&b to doom metal), horror movies (the ghostier the better), and could easily survive on a steady diet of meatball subs and cafe con leche.
