Bridgette Mayer, Abridged Curator Statement
"When I was selected as the Curator for Art in the District in 2017, I was faced with an immense challenge: creating a compelling public art project that would not get lost in the expansive space that is Fashion District. Rather than pursuing the typical public art model– investing in a single high-profile piece – I decided to create a curated art installation that both the residents of Philadelphia and visitors alike could enjoy, and one that resembled the experience you might get if you went to a museum. This installation features unique pieces from both Philadelphia-based artists and artists from around the world."
