News Art F City bestowed some affections on us this week – twice! We first got a mention for Andrew Jeffrey Wright’s “Bubble Butts” Bananazz, then a retrospective on the century-long career of a female Jewish Ashcan School painter Theresa Bernstein. Thank you kindly, friends.   Just installed this week, drivers on their way to Philadelphia via Interstate 95 can now see a dancer running the steps like nobody’s watching. Vikki Sloviter, the winner of Visit Philadelphia’s summertime photo contest, now has her photo of a dancer doing the famous steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a 60-by-16-foot billboard in ...

News   A new painting by Andrew Conti is a fresh burst of green to start this week off right. This one is the penultimate in his series Viriditas, made of entrancing, robotic-inspired abstractions.

News   A sad moment for Old City, but we’re pretty determined to end it on a happy note: after seven years of being the only African-American owned gallery in Old City, Florcy Morisset is closing Vivant Art Collection.  She and Honorary Co-Chair Lisa Nutter are understandably emotional to see it end, but they’re sending Vivant out with a full five days of festivities celebrating Vivant’s place in the community. Check out the listing of events below, and, in the words of Florcy for the last seven years - vivant! Wednesday, October 1st,  6pm – 9pm M‘ART’ini Cocktail Reception hosted ... More » »

News post – Clint Jukkala at Brian Morris, taking a “Pulse” at Dilworth, Vox Populi’s intense month of performances, opportunities and more!

News   Dilworth Park opened this month to no small fanfare, and rightfully so. But there’s still more to come for the revamped space. Janet Echelman’s sculpture piece Pulse is coming in 2015. Designed to be embedded in the new plaza’s 11,600-square-foot fountain, Pulse traces the three subway routes underneath in real time, sending up four-foot-tall trails of mist, which glow at night when illuminated by multiple layers of colored light. Farewell to the dreary and foreboding Dilworth of old! Whitney Kimball, one of the ArtFCity writers who has covered the Philly art scene several times for ArtFCity including one ... More » »
