Project Description

ASSIGNMENT 

Design a 2,200 square foot exhibition, in the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The exhibition focused on the cultural, historical, social and material culture of the city of Philadelphia. The exhibition explored a subject and related themes that embrace Philadelphia as a place, a symbol, an idea, with a social justice lens.

 

The project was held over an entire semester involving conceptualization, research/development and design.

EXHIBITION TITLE

VISUAL VOICES

Public Art & Protest in Philadelphia

BIG IDEA

 

Philadelphia’s artists respond to current-day crises

of injustice and inequality by creating work in public

spaces that reclaims power and aims to cause change

in their communities.

MISSION 

By highlighting the works of artists and socially engaged organizations fighting for equality and justice, the Visual Voices exhibition reveals the current landscape of public art, ways that artists are responding to current day societal imbalances through their artistic expressions, and shows ways of putting the power in the hands of the public to creatively re-imagine public spaces in their city.
