Calling creative West Philadelphia block captains!

I am looking for six block captains who would like to work with me to create storefront installations for Windowishes, a street exhibition designed for the seven storefront display windows on the west side of S. 40th Street, between Chestnut and Ludlow Streets in West Philadelphia. Windowishes will coincide with CFEVA’s POST tours, scheduled for Oct. 17 & 18, 2015.

We will create and install a small environment in each of the bay windows based on your personal stories and community archives. The window installations will incorporate images collected and shot for the project – including portraiture, family and archival photographs.  The displays could also include projections and videos, neighborhood objects, furniture, props and craftwork made by the participating block captains.

We will start the planning and creative work in August. We will install during the first week in October. Please contact me (Lori) if you are interested in working on this project.
