reForm Exhibition at Tyler

Author: Kylie Doyle

In the basement of Tyler, a community comes together to mourn the loss of something that they held dear. People pass one another, exchanging hugs and shouts of surprised joy, happy to see old friends. Children run through the halls, playing tag and catching up with friends they had been separated from for a long while. The smell of Puerto Rican food fills the air, and there are only a few people who are not in line for sweet plantains with rice and meat. All of these people are gathered together for the opening of the reForm exhibition, created by Pepón Osorio in the spirit of the Fairhill community to draw attention to the closing of their school, and many other Philadelphia schools in the midst of the Philadelphia school crisis. In Philadelphia, many public schools are struggling. In an attempt to close the budget gap, the school district voted to close many public institutions across the city. Read More
