Newsletter Fall 2015
Editor: Holly Smith
Letter from the President, Leslie Kaufman
I hope many of you have been able to attend and participate in at least some of our recent events and exhibitions. We have more in the pipeline, and if you haven't played an active part, there are many more opportunities ahead for you to get involved. To put it more bluntly, we need more of you to participate. Remember, the more you give more you get!
To catch up on what we have been doing since our 2014 newsletter - Last October we co-sponsored (with UArts) a presentation by noted artist Janine Antoni at UArts. She received enthusiastic support from the approximately 500 students and members of the arts community who attended.
The Third Dimension
Most recently, in September we organized "Pope Up" (see page 3), an artistic response to the visit of Pope Francis to Philadelphia. Globe Development Group once again allowed us to populate the ever -intriguing Globe Dye Works with our art. As everyone knows, there were many pope-related objects for sale everywhere, but we were the only fine art show that saw the visit as an opportunity for artists to make thoughtful (as well as funny and acerbic) statements about this historic event.
