I just got an email from Jess Carter of Carter Studios at the Dye Works. Remember the table they put together out of a factory wall? Well it’s heading to the Philly Works exhibition at UPenn. The event is open Oct 7,8, and 10 with an opening event on Friday October 9th 5:30 to 11. And is a showcase of locally crafted goods. Check out phillyworks about page:
Philly Works is an exhibit and installation of functional objects of all scales, quantities, and production techniques that are made in Philadelphia and the region. Philly Works is a survey of design, manufacturing, and craft exhibited through a showcase of prototypes, limited editions, and mass-produced goods. Along with the objects, Philly Works will include documentation of the production spaces and the people who make the objects on display. As part of the opening night event, the show will include a “corner store” where some of the many items can be purchased.
This is an interesting theme developing around East Frankford. That once thrown away buildings are being refurbished into light industry shops. STUFF IS GETTING MADE HERE. Way to go Carters, I am impressed.
