Yesterday we went as planned on the XPN Arts Crawl Tour. Riding a trolley through Philadelphia city streets and neighborhoods, we stopped at three galleries and had a narrative tour of some of the city's murals. Coinciding with the St. Patrick's Day parade, we also saw leprechauns and a lot of green.
Our itinerary included the Marcel Wanders: Daydreams exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Perelman Building, Philagrafika 2010 The Graphic Unconscious exhibit at the Pennsylvania of the Fine Arts, and Sublimation by David Meyer at 2424 Studios (photo below).
Can you guess what Sublimation is made of? Flour! The gallery roof had also leaked and the piece was being repaired when we arrived. All of the exhibits were inspirational and the talks by the curators were enlightening. If photos had been allowed, I would have taken them of Marcel Wanders' Crochet Chair that was made of crocheted cotton soaked in epoxy and of some of the collages in the Philagrafika exhibit. Today is my birthday.
