Friday, October 2nd, 2009The Trends of City Sprawl: A Site Specific Installation
by: Lauren Comito & Megan Bartley-Matthews
September 4th to October 31st, 2009
University Arts League, 4226 Spruce St., Philadelphia, PA
Open to the Public: Mon to Thurs from 12-8pm, Fri from 12-7pm, Sat & Sun by appointment only. Contact 215-382-7811 or email@example.com
The Trends of City Sprawl is an on-going and interactive work between 2 members of The Sweatshop, an artist community space in Port Richmond. This onsite installation is in conjunction with POST and The Fringe Festival. This piece is made out of an intricate web of recycled fabric scraps that have been accumulated over the last year. The networking of fabric clings to the architecture like an invasive vine, thriving on the infrastructure of the building. Everyone is encouraged to bring someone of his or her own to add to the piece.
