Author: Kylie Doyle

A few weekends ago, Philadelphia was addressed by Pope Francis, who used his time in Philadelphia to spread messages of love and acceptance. There is a great deal of preparation that goes into the appearances of Pope Francis, and one of those is the making of the vestments that he wears. Father Vincent Crosby, a man of faith and an alumnus of Tyler, is the creator of these fabrics. I was fortunate enough to speak with him about his history, process, and current work. Read More

In July 2015, Carl Marin completed Home Range (pictured above), a $30,000 four-year long Percent for Art commission at the recently renovated Sturgis Playground in the Olney neighborhood of North Philadelphia.  The artwork consists of a 190 foot-long fence along the east-side of the site’s football field.  It utilizes a simple animation technique developed in the early 19th century.  As viewers move along the piece, they see images of five deer, appearing to graze and gaze at passersby.

BFA Sculpture Alumnus, Anton Lieberman, has a two person show at Ltd., Los Angeles!

Author: matthews

Anton Lieberman works under the precept that time, as far as humans are concerned, is irrelevant. What separates the caveman from the astronaut is roughly the same as what separates Coke from Pepsi: one small step for man, one unimpressed, slack-jawed stare from the universe. Past and future melt into a gooey heap, spoonful’s of which produce confused, time traveling objects, the logic of which is at once confidant and flawed. Tools of unknown origin and function pop into being. Plants grow as if governed by an entirely new set of rules. Bits of technology force themselves onto nature. Anachronisms abound. Read More
