For Freedoms Town Hall

  • PAFA 128 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA, 19102 United States (map)

Four of Philadelphia’s cultural institutions come together for an artist-led evening of talks that look at how art deepens public discussions of civic issues and core values. Organized around the four freedoms articulated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1941, these short but impactful glimpses into the engaged practices of four different artist projects will present timely and inspiring new perspectives on the collective power of artists and the importance of free dialogue. Presenting artists include Rina Banerjee, Shawn Theodore, Richard Watson and young artists from Mural Arts Philadelphia.

PPAC’s exhibition, Yearbook, presents portraits of Philadelphia youth in Mural Arts’ Art Education programs by photographers Danna Singer, Shawn Theodore, and Daniel Traub. These images, made in collaborative sessions with the young people, will be displayed in PPAC’s gallery and on billboards throughout the city.

The African American Museum in Philadelphia
Philadelphia Photo Arts Center
Mural Arts Philadelphia
