The mister and I headed out to the Art Museum this rainy morn to view the Zoe Strauss exhibit.  I am an admirer of Zoe's work and have been looking forward to this exhibit for over a year.  Zoe is an artist living and making images in South Philadelphia.  She is a neighbor whom I've never met.

You may recall these images I purchased at the last of her I-95 exhibits.

or this one I framed earlier this year for a client:

They all share a space in the shop's window now, as part of the city-wide celebration of her work.

I am proud to live in a city whose world-class museum brings one of its own to the forefront.  The Billboard Project, the installation by the museum of 54 billboards of Zoe's work throughout the city, and the exhibit itself, are remarkable and powerful.

Congratulations and Thank You!
