[Here’s a brief update on our Artist and Social Responsibility (ASR) project.]

More than 100 people turned out Monday night at Slought to hear internationally-acclaimed artists Pepon Osorio (left) and Ken Lum (second from right) speak with ICA Director Amy Sadao and Slought’s Aaron Levy (right) about art, community, trust, responsibility, institutions, history, the public and lots more.

Best Conversation Ever – With your help we can Do It Again!

It was an intense, passionate and intellectual conversation, punctuated with humor and light moments, like when Aaron asked a question regarding “trust,” and Ken piped up with “I don’t trust the question.”

We are so thankful to the participants for donating their time, energy and thoughts to a discussion whose time is absolutely right for Philadelphia now, when more art is being made with more communities than ever before.  Special thanks to Aaron and Slought for embracing the event and being such gracious hosts.

Help us keep the conversation going – Contribute!

We are now half-way through our IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to keep the Artist and Social Responsibility Project alive! Artblog is committed to the continuation of ASR.  Make a contribution today to sustain the project and enrich the dialog about art, community, and meaning in Philadelphia!
