18th + Walnut | #trashcantakeover #farewell #philly #art not #ads #silkgraffitibyaubriecostello #garybarbera • • • “There’s nothing cheap about our public spaces,” says Conrad Benner, Founder of StreetsDept.com. “I believe deeply in the value of public space and that what we put there has an effect on the ways we think, feel, and behave. Replacing a number of ads around Philadelphia with art from local artists is a big step in the right direction for returning the public space to the public. And it’s a growing trend in cities, following the inspiration of other such projects like the ​#YeahWeGotKeysForThat ​ ad takeover campaign and New York City’s ​Art in Ad Places.​ What can happen when we replace ads with art? When we use our public spaces to center less on consumerism and more on the human experience? I’m not sure, but I think they’re questions worth asking.” 🙏 big ups to @streetsdept @brendanlowry @rorycreative @cityfitnessphilly | Farewell image by @lendltellington

TOMORROW | 2200 WALNUT STREET | 6-8PM | • • • Decorous, featuring Donald E. Camp, Aubrie Costello, and Tom Judd, elevates and honors the words, individuals, and histories in our collective unconscious. The artists’ work melds social justice, politics, human rights, and personal narratives to yield a provocative and layered dialogue. They give voice to those struggling to be heard, including African-American men, women, and those seeking a better life for their families. With a distinctly American view on race, activism, and the frontier spirit, these artists invite us to confront and engage in conversation by elevating the every-man/woman to opulence, reverence, and relevance.

The molding, accents, and chandeliers interact with the rough-around-the-edges aesthetic of the artwork to shed light on the fine line of between high and low culture as well as the line-in-the-sand drawn by class and racial differences. Depicting those often marginalized as revered portraits and voicing their words in silk slogans alongside suited businessmen in free-fall conjures the possibility that roles can be reversed and identity can be reformed. #tomjudd #donaldecamp #aubriecostello #silkgraffitibyaubriecostello #amiepotsic #spaceandcompany #philadelphia #art #artcollector #artopening #whyilovephilly #phillyart #phillyartist
