Philly Street Artist Joe Boruchow Installs “VOTE” Wheatpastes Around Town

November 3, 2018

New wheatpastes around Philly this week from paper cutout artist Joe Boruchow hope to inspire Philadelphians to vote this Tuesday, November 6th! The pastes are located at 5th and Bainbridge streets in Queen Village (above) and 3rd and Chestnut streets in Old City (below.)

And if these designs look familiar, they should! Because they were originally created for, and first shown at, our To the Polls exhibition late last month, apart of a series of four new paper cutout designs from Joe titled Four Allegories of Voting:

“The urgency is clear. Without true mass engagement our democracy will not survive. This election and every other, vote. Vote to protect your children. Vote to sweep away the rubbish. Vote to preserve your mental and physical health.” Joe wrote in his artist statement about the new works.

Joe is also now selling a few of these vote designs in t-shirt form, which y’all should definitely get and sport every election season!
