Did you know that Philadelphia is home to one of the largest public art collections in the country? This is because of the city’s long-standing practice of integrating the arts into academia and programs like Mural Arts and Percent for Art.
To take a closer look at Philly’s art scene, WeWork invites you to join them for Future of Art – Breaking the Mold from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, September 7 at its Northern Liberties location.
The evening will begin with cocktails and snacks while NDA Streetart creates a live mural painting and local artists showcase their work throughout the venue. Then, Karin Copeland, Executive Director of the Art + Business Council of Greater Philadelphia, will moderate a panel discussion on the shifting landscape of arts in Philadelphia. The panel will be comprised of:
• Jane Golden
– Founder & Executive Director, Mural Arts Philadelphia
• Julia Guerrero – Director, Percent for Art Program, Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority
• Damon Reaves – Associate Curator of Education, Philadelphia Museum of Art
• Margot Berg – Public Art Director, City of Philadelphia
After the discussion, be sure to stick around for networking and a tour of WeWork!
The event is 21+ only. You and your friends can RSVP here.
