Only a couple events remain in the year, and the September Twilight in the Gardens is one not to be missed!
Enjoy a live performance by Conjunto Philadelphia, a musical ensemble based in the Philadelphia area. They perform the music of Pre-Revolutionary Cuba, including the Son, Cha-Cha-Chá and Bolero. The group’s main aspiration is to pay homage to Cuba’s deep and treasured musical history as well as infuse a new energy and fresh interpretation into the music.
Teaching Artist Victoria Schenck is a Philly-based weaver, ceramicist, and poet interested in untangling the space between in & between. Her work documents her desire to gently over-expose forces hidden in plain sight, giving form to the grey area through everyday mass-produced objects and materials. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fibers from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in 2017, and you can follow her on Instagram @weekdayspecial.
For September’s hands-on activity, Schenck will help guests create their own mini weavings using cloth and small looms. Use your weaving as a coaster, or hang it on your wall as a work of art!
Visitors also have the chance to learn more about PMG through fun, casual mini-tours of the space and can check out Martha Clippinger: Translations in our galleries.
Twilight in the Gardens is a BYOBBS event (Bring Your Own Booze, Blanket, and Snacks), and guests are encouraged to relax and picnic in the space.
