Art suggestions from Caitlin Perkins, UArts Continuing Education Program Director
I have tried to be outside as much as possible this summer, including any cultural events. I’ve walked along the Highline using my field guide by Mark Dion from Printed Matter; experienced River Charette #3 by Martha McDonald and David Brick at the Andalusia Foundation along the Delaware, and enjoying the Alexander Calder sculpture on the roof deck of the new Whitney.
I plan on continuing my outdoor cultural visits this fall. Here are some things I’m looking forward to:
The Quiet Circus: River Charrettes will be starting again in September
Performative Dialogues curated by Headlong & Philadelphia Contemporary
The project, taking place over nine weeks between September 16 and November 19, invites people to join a citywide conversation about history, memory, and our collective future.
Big Bling Martin Puryear along Kelly Drive between Fountain Green Drive and the Connecting Railway and Girard Avenue Bridges, viewable through November 2017.
Planning some walks in Philadelphia using this guide to take in the public sculpture.
Taking us inside I’m looking forward to the opening of Julianna Foster’s exhibition, Call and Response
An Exploration of Photography and Writing with Julianna Foster
Exhibition of selected work from the project along with the book: Call and Response
August 25th - September 22nd, 2017
Reception Thursday, September 7 from 4-6 p.m.
University of the Arts, 211 S. Broad St. 15th floor, Sol Mednick Gallery
And, if you are coming to the Continuing Studies offices in the next few weeks you can catch an exhibition of original posters produced for the Works Progress Administration curated by Social Impact Studios - Posters for the People: the Art of the WPA.
