Online Conventions
2020 has been, well, 2020. But through the endless seas of troubles, online conventions have been islands of greatness. We are eternally grateful for the support of the MLP community, and all of the fun time we’ve been able to have.
TPM usually attends 10 conventions per year. This year we participated in over 30 online events, and boy are our arms tired! (Seriously, it’s been fun but we are exhausted.) We look forward to continuing the online events in 2021, and in-person cons once it’s truly safe to do so. We’ve already got applications out!
Looking Forward
No one knows what the future will bring, and looking at 2021 it’s safe to say whatever it is, it won’t be “normal”. We look forward to more online events and continuing to meet new fans from around the world. And, who knows? Maybe a year from now we’ll be able to start meeting in person.
Let’s Go 2021!

What is the TPM?
The Traveling Pony Museum is a collection of artwork and plushies from artists in the brony community. The Museum travels to many of the major brony conventions throughout the United States.

Why should I be involved?
Your artwork, if selected, will be on display at major conventions for all to see. We print on high quality paper with excellent printers. Physical art is displayed on tables with usually a no-touch policy in place.

We can also sell your prints in our (at-con only) store; We handle printing, and you gain exposure and a commission charge. Proceeds cover our travel costs, and we could not do this without you! Limitations and commission charges can be negotiated. You MUST be officially signed up with us through our official sign up form in order to sell with us. Please contact us @ for the form.

What are the requirements?
Physical objects must be appealing to look at and of reasonable quality.

Prints, as a general rule, need to be complete scenes. OCs are not usually allowed due to their lack of wide appeal. Works must be of your own creation. Show traces and remixes are not allowed.

I don't make art. How can I help?
Do you have an eye for good art? Join the dA group and you can submit pieces to the Group Favorites. Museum staff looks through the Favorites to find pieces to invite into the Museum. Help us find the next big thing!
