Let Me Tell You About a Dream I Had: The Miss Rockaway Armada

The Philadelphia Art Alliance (PAA) underwent exhibition planning with artist collective the Miss Rockaway Armada for a new project, exploring the PAA's relationship to Rittenhouse Square and the history of Philadelphia. The Miss Rockaway Armada has been recognized for its mobile constructions, museum installations, performances, and Vaudeville-style theater. The collective's activities relate to exploring new sustainable ways of living and socio-political and environmental issues associated with renewable resources and the handmade. This planning process resulted in a 2010 Project Grant, to support an exhibition and related activities in 2011.
