Taller Puertorriqueño

Tonight, 5:00-8:00pm, attend the opening of a project of artist Pepón Osorio with Temple Contemporary, which responds to the 2013 budget-related closure of Fairhill School, the reForm Project.

Transportation to and from the event will be available from Fairhill School, 601 W. Somerset Street. Shuttles will leave every 30 minutes from 5:00-8:00pm. The reception is at Tyler School of Art, 2001 N. 13th St.
Two years after thousands of students lost their school and had to be relocated as part of the school closures that impacted Philadelphia, comes an art installation that goes deep into the social and emotional effects of displacement.

This Friday, 5-8pm: "In 2013, two-dozen Philadelphia schools were shuttered by city authorities in an effort to close a budget deficit. In response to these closings, Temple Contemporary has commissioned artist Pepón Osorio to create a new installation specifically addressing the loss of the Fairhill Elementary School in North Philadelphia, not far from Temple University."
