This fall, Philadelphia is going to look even brighter! The Mural Arts program has just announced its Monument Lab, a citywide public art and history project that will create temporary public art installations in 10 locations across the city. It will last for nine weeks and is co-produced by Mural Arts Philadelphia and curators Paul Farber, Ken Lum and A. Will Brown. The exhibition will take place Sept. 16 through Nov. 19, 2017, and will be featured in the five original William Penn Center City squares as well as five neighborhood parks throughout the City of Philadelphia.
This weekend is the annual Uptown Art Fair. The three-day event features professional artwork in 12 different types of media, including ceramics, painting, jewelry and more. 350-plus artists from around the world will feature their artwork along Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue.
