The 40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program awards West Philadelphia artists 1 year of free studio space at 40th & Chestnut Sts. In exchange, residents share their talents within West Philadelphia by leading workshops, teaching classes, exhibiting, etc. Founded by artist Edward M. Epstein in 2003 and managed by Gina Renzi since 2008, we address the need for studio space in West Philadelphia, assist artists with career development, and make the 40th Street area a nexus for visual arts.
TOMORROW: current AIR resident Genesis Martinez-Crespo presents a group exhibit from local artists. Check out their work, including photographs with accompanying artist readings, poetry, videos and more. Hope to see y'all there!!
Friday, December 11. 6 pm, talks start at 7 pm. 4007 Chestnut Street, First Floor.
