Call to artists for West Philadelphia benefit

The 40th Street Artist in Residence (AIR) Program, provides one year of free studio space to West Philadelphia artists. In exchange, the artists must complete community outreach projects.

One such project requires YOUR help. In less than 2 weeks, AIR will hold a sale of small works at their gallery at 4007 Chestnut Street.

Sales will benefit the People's Emergency Center (PEC), which is an organization that nurtures families, strengthens neighborhoods, and drives change. They are committed to increasing equity and opportunity throughout our entire community. They provide comprehensive supportive services to homeless women and their children, revitalize West Philadelphia, and advocate for social justice.

They need your artwork! Please see the flyer for information.
