A lovely day for Make Art Philly

Make Art Philly, a day of voting themed art-making during the 2016 Democratic National Convention

The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy hosted “Make Art Philly,” a day of voting themed art-making and crafting for young Philadelphians, Democratic National Convention delegates, and their families in the City Hall Courtyard on Wednesday, July 27, 2016. ArtWell and several cultural organizations from throughout Philadelphia shared their art-making skills, allowing visitors to participate in voting themed button-making, painting, screen printing, sculpture activities and many other family-friendly activities.

ArtWell collaging, collective poem, and pledge activities were led by program director Julia Terry, program associate Kris Smith, and teaching artists Lan VanDe Hei and Lee Fogel.
