Sneak Preview: Tiny Room for Elephants 2018

April 19, 2018

Holy shit: If y’all aren’t planning on going to Tiny Room for Elephants in Philly this weekend, what are you even doing with your life?

For the last three years, Tiny Room for Elephants (aka “TRFE”) has hosted an annual art and music exhibition that features the work of some of the Philadelphia area’s most prolific artists, illustrators, street artists, graffiti writers, and DJs; this year they’re adding the work of a few photographers as well.

Most of the artists and writers participating in TRFE create their pieces, their murals, in the space that the exhibition will be held in over the days and weeks leading to the exhibition’s opening. The “tiny room,” as it were, is then opened for a single weekend inviting any and all to come check out what’s been made surrounded by fellow creatives from many of Philly’s different (and too often siloed) arts communities. In all, it adds up to an event unmatched in Philadelphia. Definitely something not to be missed!

The brainchild of lead organizers/curators YaYa Horne, Donte Neal (Mars,) Chris White, and Damion Ward (who are photographed together below,) this year’s stellar list of artists and writers includes: Stacey (Flygirrl) Wilson, Air Rat, SeperMarshall Linton, Joshua Ruggeri, Willis Nomo, Semet, BustaEnemBenjamin J. Howard, Saga Moor, Lawren Alice, Lotits, Noel Wilmore, Texas, Gane, YomiPriscilla Bell, Makeda, Bnmprez, Leondiastemata, and Phobymo! A full list of the DJ line-up can be found here.

The exhibition opens this Friday (tomorrow!) and goes through Sunday at Bok in South Philly…
