This summer, visitors to Philadelphia’s Historic District should get ready to be part of a revolution.
From May 25 through July 4, Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition will showcase free public artwork at 13 locations exploring revolutionary themes.
Presented by VISIT PHILADELPHIA, the exhibit features a curated selection of street artists chosen by Conrad Benner, the founder and editor of street art photo-blog streetsdept.com.
Each exhibiting artist was tasked with creating or presenting a work of art that showcases his or her own interpretation of “revolution” and how that concept might challenge the social and political status quo.
The featured works, created by forward-thinking artists like Kid Hazo, Michelle Angela Ortiz, Shawn Theodore and more, will be found both indoors and outdoors throughout the district in places like Franklin Square, Spruce Street Harbor Park, FringeArts and the National Museum of American Jewish History.
In addition to the neighborhood-wide exhibition, on Wednesday, June 7, a panel featuring the participating artists will take place at the National Constitution Center.
Stay tuned for more on this summertime pop-up.
