Philadelphia Open Studios Tour (POST)

This year my studio will be open as part of the city wide Philadelphia Open Studios Tour. A special PR initiative for the event is called “Made in Philly”, placing artworks on posters in bus and trolley shelters and on train platforms near artists’ studios. My work was selected for this project and is currently visible on the trolley shelter at 53rd Street and Baltimore Avenue, four blocks from my studio.
