UNOCCUPIED reviewed by The Art Blog

UNOCCUPIED has received a nice review from The Art Blog:
At Fortieth Street AIR, which is always engaged with Philadelphia artists, the gallery this month, is graced by work from current resident-artist Michael Konrad. He is continuing his exploration of survival in the decaying urban ecosystem with an installation built around a tent and pennant festoons all made from recycled umbrella canopies. This is where dead umbrellas go to die!

The exhibition is on view until March 30 at AIRspace Gallery (4007 Chestnut Street).
