Join associate curator Rachel Hruszkewycz, Thursday, August 25 at 6 pm for an exclusive tour of The Woodmere Annual: 80th Juried Exhibition, now on view through August 28. Refreshments will be served after the tour.
About the Exhibition: The Woodmere Annual presents the work of Philadelphia’s contemporary artists. Jurors Michelle Angela Ortiz and José Ortiz-Pagán invited artists to submit works of visual art that reflect the theme of migration.
Thirty-five artists working in sculpture, video, painting, photography, and collage address topics such as the Great Migration, the experience of Congolese immigrants in Philadelphia, the degradation of the natural world, and the migration of the Arctic tern, whose annual route is longer than that of any other bird. The spectrum of ideas and processes illustrates the intellectual rigor and creative diversity that characterize our city’s art community.
