Mine Moonlight: Artists Working in Philadelphia’s River Wards

Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts;

April 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016

An exhibit of contemporary artworks that spook to the history beneath the feet of artists working in the Riverwards neighborhoods of northern Philadelphia. Exploring the themes of hand craft, functionality, and fragmentation, these 10 installations drew connections to the origins of the artisan community that is seeing a resurgence in Northern Liberties, Kensington-Fishtown, and Port Richmond. This exhibition was 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.
