So I’ve been participating in CITYWIDE for most of this year, like a good 100-odd other Philadelphia artists. If you’re in Philadelphia you’ve likely heard about it. Andi and I curated North by Northwest for Marginal Utility, we hosted Practice: Picture Day at our own space, Mount Airy Contemporary, and I’ve been helping with the publication study group, the trolley tours, a Kickstarted private tour, and so on. That sounds like a lot but the fact is pretty much everyone involved is putting in similar effort.
This is more or less a placeholder for some things I plan to say on the experience, which has been an ongoing thing for 10 months now, I think. I’m working on finding the right words. For now I’ll just say I’m very proud to be a Philadelphia artist.
