Nom Now Pastes in West Philly for Furnessadelphia
Come celebrate Philadelphia’s most innovative architect, Frank Furness, this Friday night – First Friday – as Streets Dept Presents ‘Furnessadelphia: A Street Art Salute to the Banks of Frank Furness’ at Art In The Age from 6 to 8pm.
Furnessadelphia will feature 4 of our city’s most inspired street artists – NoseGo, Ishknits, Nom Now, and Harlequinade – who will canvas the city with works of art commemorating the banks of Furness as apart of a month long, city-wide Furness Festival, which includes exhibits at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Kroiz Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania, among others. (Learn more about all the Furness exhibitions HERE.)
The locations of the pieces created by NoseGo, Ishknits, and Harlequinade will be revealed this week on StreetsDept.com and at the show on Friday, where a gallery of photos and a map of the artists’ installations will be on display… But today we’re starting with Nom Now!!
Nom Now’s paste is up on the Market street facing door of what is now called the Paul Peck Alumni Center, but which was originally the Centennial National Bank, built in 1876, located on Drexel University’s campus at the intersection of Market street and JFK boulevard (and yes, that intersection exists… I know, right?! It’s right below 32nd street on Market.)
Go check it out, Tweet and Instagram. It’s AWESOME!! And I hope you all can make it out on Friday… I’m so pumped about this show and the work these artists have put into it. Oh, and there will be free Art In The Age drinks to sip on, so that’s a plus too.
