Tyler Alumni Receives Leeway Grant

Author: Kylie Doyle

Grants are one of the greatest resources for artists with a vision. Recently, a Tyler Alumna was the recipient of the Leeway Grant, a source of funds that provides a variety of awards to artists working towards social change in their practice. The Leeway Foundation seeks to amplify marginalized voices in art, providing creators with resources to accomplish their goals and participate in the making of a space in our culture for the unheard. Barbara Baur, a Tyler Alumna, was recently named as one of the recipients of the Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant. Baur is a multi-faceted artist and instructor at Tyler. Her work connects body adornment with fine art, and with the help of the Leeway Foundation will be bringing her expertise to new communities. I had the opportunity to interview Baur about her process leading up to the grant, as well as her history in art and community work. Read More

A Long Battle Finally Won for the PECO Delaware Station

Author: Andrea Smith

In the Fall of 2014, potential owners bid on the PECO Delaware Station with many visions for the site. Whether or not these projects included keeping the 223,000 sq ft building, changes would still be made that would not only affect the site, but the surrounding area of Fishtown. Designed in 1917 by John T. Windram and William Eglin along the Delaware River, the original PECO building served as a culturally and historically important structure for the changing Philadelphia area. Stephanie Haller, BS Arch and Arch Pres. ’15, decided to nominate the exterior of the building to be added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places as her Architectural Preservation Capstone Project. She came in contact with Fishtown Neighbors Association member Jill Betters, who assisted Stephanie in the advocacy to save the building. Another close contact was Kim Broadbent of the Historical Commission, who assisted in editing the nomination of the building. Read More
