Artist in Residence- SPACES- The Village of Arts and Humanities

Since June I have been one of the artists in residence with SPACES, a new residency program started by the Village of Arts and Humanities here in Philadelphia. I share this amazing opportunity with my 4 fellow members of Amber Art and Design, an artist collective formed in 2011 with a focus on creating public art in a way that engages people and enhances quality of life by providing creative experiences. Our project "The Village Table" seeks to engage neighbors and members of the local community through locally grown food and shared dinning experiences. We are working with neighbors to collect recipes and then remix them to give them a healthy twist. For our events we will be building tables and benches from re-purposed wood and found materials. Lots of lovely photos, taken by Lillian Dunn, can be seen here
