Friends & Neighbors West Philly Artist Invitational opens FRI JAN 11, 6-9pm

Hey folks!
It’s about that time—-the time for our annual exhibit of local artists whom our residents know and love–their friends and neighbors!

Our 2012-2013 residents Fatima Adamu, Mike Harpring, Diedra Krieger, Thomason Parnes, and Celestine Wilson Hughes, invite you to Friends and Neighbors, which has become a yearly tradition. Rather than showing our residents’ work, our residents invite artists with strong ties to the neighborhood to show their work for a 3 week-long exhibit.
