Spillway Collective presents Museums, Monuments, & Mausoleums, an exhibition curated by Marie Manski, featuring works by three Philadelphia Artists: Gabrielle Patterson, Lydia Smith, and C.J. Stahl.

What happens when something expires?  How is it remembered and what kind of new life does it take on in its afterlife?  In this exhibition, we examine the ritual of remembrance.  Artists, craftspeople, and even the layperson all explore what it means to build spaces to capture and express the value of something.  Whether it's a ritual or an epitaph, a vault or a museum, a monolith or a memento- we find ways to make the ephemeral permanent.
