This weekend, America's oldest outdoor show of original art will take place in Philadelphia. The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show is celebrating its 90th year.

For the first time, the competitive exhibition will feature art by formerly homeless people.

We are eagerly looking forward to tomorrow night, when the latest Project HOME art show open.  Our “Artists For All Season” has its grand opening and reception on Wednesday, October 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm, at Drexel University’s URBN Center, 3501 Market Street.  This show is a partnership with Drexel University, and will feature drawings, painting, and photos by several Project HOME artists who have been part of our Art Program.

Several artists from the Project HOME community will join the elite company of Rembrandt, Monet, and Picasso when they have their work on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Opening today at the Museum is the “Bridges Exhibit,” which features the artwork of seven Project HOME residents, staff, and volunteers.

We are very excited to announce that Project HOME artist James Webster will have two of his pieces on display as part of an exhibit at PhilaMOCA, an alternative art space at 12th and Spring Garden Streets.   The show is titled “ ’Merica,” and will open with a reception this Friday, July 1.  The exhibit will hang through the end of the Democratic National Convention (July 28).

Meet the Maker – Julia Galetti

For Project HOME resident Julia Galetti, art is more than a hobby. The recipient of multiple Leeway Foundation Art and Change grants, Galetti works across multiple mediums. Her portrait subjects range from vintage Rockettes to First Lady Michelle Obama in the White House Rose Garden.  Twenty-three years clean, Galetti says that art helps her maintain her sobriety.
