Art at Mission Presents: “Open Up” by Chad States

January 10, 2020

Art at Mission is a new arts project that transforms Mission Taqueria’s courtyard into an experimental outdoor arts space! Curated by’s founder Conrad Benner, we use #ArtAtMission to build rotating, quarterly exhibitions in collaboration with Philly artists.

For Winter 2020, we’ll be featuring an evocative new light installation by artist Chad States, titled Open Up. A pulsing symbol of light and possibility exhibited at the start of the new decade and through the darkest months of the year, we’re hoping Chad’s work can offer solace and inspiration!

Artist Statement by Chad States:
“Open up. It’ll feel so good. Trust me. It’ll feel so good to do it. Go ahead. All your friends are talking about it. You know you want to try it, too. C’mon. You do. So go on. You’ll enjoy it. You will. You know you will. You have wanted to for awhile now. Just relax. It’s easier than you think. Give in to it. Don’t be shy. Open up. Stop worrying about what others might think. Stop worrying about what others might say. Do it. You’ll be surprised by how good it feels. Just open up. Let someone in. Let the whole world in.”

Be sure to join us for the for the exhibition’s opening party, y’all won’t wan to miss this…
