Description

Join us for a pop-up exhibition at the Wiota Street Garden, featuring work created by Writers Room's TRIPOD writers-in-residence during a summer workshop with Mural Arts Philadelphia and People’s Paper Co-op artists Courtney Bowles and Mark Strandquist.

In collaboration with guest curator-in-residence Daniel Tucker for the series, "Power Map: Historical Mural Activitations," Writers Room hosted Bowles and Strandquist for a workshop in July 2019, during which TRIPOD members responded to the mural Boy with the Raised Arm by Sidney Goodman (1990) at 40th and Powelton. This program was developed in conjunction with Whitman at 200 and done in collaboration with Mural Arts Philadelphia for a special series of six newly commissioned events, performances, and workshops activating murals created in Mural Arts Philadelphia's first 20 years.
