Exploring the themes of hand craft, functionality, and fragmentation, these 10 installations draw connections to the origins of the artisan community that is seeing a resurgence in Northern Liberties, Kensington-Fishtown, and Port Richmond, in compliment to From the Ground Up: Archaeology, Artisans, Everyday Life, an exhibition in partnership with AECOM-Burlington that explores findings from the archeological investigation being conducted along the expanding I-95 corridor.  Curated by Paul Swenbeck.
