Announcing ‘Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition’ Coming to Philadelphia’s Historic District This Summer

May 3, 2017

SOOOOOOOO excited to finally announce that this summer I’ll be partnering with VISIT PHILADELPHIA to curate a massive public art exhibition across Philadelphia’s Historic District!

Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition will celebrate 13 contemporary Philly-based artists whose work challenges the social and political status quo at 13 prominent locations around Old City, Society Hill, and along the Delaware River Waterfront from May 24th through 
July 4th, 2017.

The 13 artists participating in Revolutionary are looking at the world around us with a critical eye; they include artists Kid Hazo, Michelle Angela Ortiz, Shawn Theodore, and a special collaboration between Yasmine Mustafa and Monica O… If you’re curious, yes, we picked 13 artists as a wink to the historical significance of the number 13; the 13 stars featured on the first American flag.

From Spruce Street Harbor Park to the National Museum of the American Jewish History and from FringeArts to Franklin Square, each piece of artwork will be installed either outdoors or viewable from a freely accessible indoor space making the entire exhibition free for all!

An artist panel discussion will take place on June 7th at the National Constitution Center to explore our exhibit’s revolutionary theme and to talk in more depth with four of our Revolutionary artists about their work.

More details on that artist panel, as well as the full list of Revolutionary artists, locations, and artworks will be revealed at a press conference on Tuesday, May 23rd… Stay tuned, y’all!
