  • Da Vinci Art Alliance 704 Catharine Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 United States (map)

Shelter, our collaborative exhibition with Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA), is on view from September 5 – 23, 2018 in the DVAA Gallery 1 at 704 Catharine St. in Philadelphia’s Bella Vista neighborhood. An open call for artists resulted in a show that included diverse media and thoughtful interpretations of the theme. PS members, DVAA members, and artists from the greater Philadelphia community submitted works for the show, and curator Elaine Crivelli selected twenty one artists to exhibit their works.


Crivelli asks critical questions that the artists in the show endeavor to answer:


"How does one define shelter? Is it a place to call home or the fear of not having one; a place of protection from environmental, political, social or physical dangers? Or is it a state of mind, an abstract concept, an interpretation of what a safe place should be or could be? What does shelter mean for immigrants in search of better lives in America today? Can one find solace in a sacred place and can the human body serve as a sanctuary to protect us from the bombardment of information infusing our daily lives and the adversities of the outside world?"


Come view the show and see how artists engage with this very topical conversation.
