Jeff Kilpatrick and Brad Carney Want to Put Me in A Fishtown Mural

October 6, 2015


Please excuse me while my dreams come true…

Y’ALL! The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union and Mural Arts are asking for Philadelphians to vote for their favorite of 3 proposed mural designs. The winning design will be painted in Fishtown/East Kensington. And, while I think all 3 are lovely, I have to ask you to take 3 seconds and vote for my favorite: Jeff Kilpatrick and Brad Carney’s mural, which they go on to describe as such…

“A neighborhood is made of generations of families working and playing in the streets. This mural depicts images of local artists, craftsmen, and community members from our past and present. Each individual represents a story and a history. Sculptors, painters, and fabricators of all kinds have found Fishtown and East Kensington a place to call home.”

Ok, and yes, I’m depicted in the mural. So this is a slightly selfish ask, but I ask none the less. It’d mean a ton to me, so thank you if you do vote…


The Knight Cities Challenge is Looking to Fund the Best Ideas for Philly

As avid readers of this blog may know, over the last several months I’ve been working on an AMAZING Knight Cities Challenge winning project called Next Stop: Democracy which is hiring 60 Philadelphia artists to create a new look for Election Day.

Well, this week Knight announced that they were looking again for some GREAT ideas for cities to fund. Serious, how often do you have people ready and willing to give you money to fund your great idea for making your city (Philly in our case) a better place to live?!

So with that, I just wanted to share Knight’s recent blog post

“Imagine if you won funding for your best idea to make your city more successful. Imagine social media buzzing with daily mentions of your project and your work being celebrated in the press. Then, imagine City Hall deciding your idea works so well that it will change the way the city does business.

That’s what happened to Ben Bryant, one of 32 winners of the inaugural Knight Cities Challenge. Ben’s brainstorm, the Pop-Up Pool Project in Philadelphia, became an instant hit when it launched this summer.

Now, you have an opportunity to win support for your idea as Knight Foundation launches the second round of the Knight Cities Challenge. We’ll award $5 million to fund new ideas to make the 26 Knight communities more successful by advancing talent, opportunity and engagement. The challenge will be open for applications from Oct. 1-Oct. 27 at, and we’ll announce winners early next year.”

I feel like there are so many amazing people in Philly right now with SO MANY amazing ideas. Well, here’s your chance. Learn more and apply HERE!
