Revolutionary Art: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition
The National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia PA
May 22 - July 4, 2017
I was thrilled to be included among 13 artists installing public art around the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia, curated by Conrad Benner in partnership with Visit Philly and the Old City District.
In the first floor of the National Museum of American Jewish History, I installed a projection of a series of portraits of women labor union and anti-war activists, both Jewish women depicted in the museum's galleries, and women of color leaders and participants in historic activism.

Signs of Solidarity
Trinity Framing - 3rd and Bainbridge Sts, Philadelphia
January 20 - 27, 2017
I created a seven by seven foot painting for the ambitious Signs of Solidarity project curated by Eric Preisendanz, Conrad Benner of Streets Dept, and others. More than thirty large signs with messages of solidarity were installed on storefronts around Philadelphia. My sign was at the excellent Trinity Framing at 3rd and Bainbridge Streets in the Queen Village neighborhood of Center City Philadelphia. Signs were installed in time for Inauguration Day.

Improvisational Multi-Media Performance
Sunday February 26, 2017
The Rotunda - 4014 Walnut St Philadelphia
Dan Blacksberg (trombone) and Dexter Moore (keyboard) and I created an improvisational multi-media performance as part of my ongoing Shul/Church Project. I created projections using a live video feed of paper-cut fragments, in response to Dan and Dexter's pairing of sounds rooted in Jewish and Black Christian music.
Video documentation of the full performance coming soon!
