The Village of Arts and Humanities, in collaboration with Monument Lab, presents a virtual preview of Staying Power, a public art exhibition and public program series that seeks to understand and amplify the “staying power” of residents of Philadelphia’s historic Fairhill-Hartranft neighborhood. The full exhibition will open May 1.  

The evening will include conversations with artists, curators, and neighborhood collaborators and an early look at prototype monuments for the forthcoming public exhibition by Sadie Barnette, Courtney Bowles and Mark Strandquist, Ebony G. Patterson (Chicago/Kingston), Deborah Willis, and arts collective Black Quantum Futurism (consisting of Pew Fellows Camae Ayewa & Rasheedah Phillips).
