Neighborhood Spotlight Series

Via Asian Arts Initiative


To provide everyday artistic experiences in Chinatown and South Philadelphia by creating site-specific works for nontraditional places like restaurants, storefronts and public plazas

Summary: This series seeks to provide everyday artistic experiences for residents and visitors alike in Chinatown and South Philadelphia. The Asian Arts Initiative will invite five teams of artists to create site-specific works of art in nontraditional places – a restaurant, storefront window, parking lot, public park or plaza, for example. Each installation will engage residents through community workshops, other public programming and multimedia content. The project invites audiences to experience neighborhoods as destinations of diverse histories and spirited complexity.
