Today students from HMS School for Children with Cerebral Palsy visited the Cultural Arts Center with their art teacher Eiko Fan to help us make life-size sculptural figures that will be included in our upcoming collaborative art exhibition Artist Exchange. This exhibition will open at Philadelphia City Hall on March 5 and is part of the Art in City Hall program. We had a great time working together to create and paint these beautiful sculptures and can't wait to share them with you at the exhibition's opening reception on Wednesday, March 14 at 5:30 PM!
