Rosi Dispensa, Tower, C- Print, 2006
It is one of those moments in time when various cool things have started to coalesce in one place.
That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I am excited about all of these cultural things that are happening in the neighborhood that P’unk Avenue calls home.
Case in point: there are 4 art openings this friday night in our hood. Of equal interest, there could have been 11! In fact, I have started to create a map of places that show and/or create culture
near us. I know of a few more, and I am sure there is stuff I am missing.
Because I have a lot of free time (!), I am in the process of trying to coordinate this so that everyone considers doing something on the 2nd Friday of the month. Nancy at Benna’s Cafe
has openings on this schedule, so it only makes sense to build upon this.
Today’s Daily News mentions this emergence of this art scene in South Philadelphia.
Some other cool things to note: Kun-Yang Lin Dance Company
bought a building in the area and has intentions of opening their studio here.
