Signs Of Solidarity

Signs Of Solidarity

On January 20th, Trump's Inauguration Day, the first phase of #SignsOfSolidarity took place and saw dozens of buildings across the city of Philadelphia drop 31 large, artist-made banners displaying messages of love and inclusivity to stand in opposition to hate and in protest of any and all that embolden divisiveness.

Signs of Solidarity was created because we refuse to accept the normalization of divisiveness and the hate it breeds. Philadelphia is not only the birthplace of American democracy, but the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. Philadelphia is a better city because of its diverse communities. We’re a better city because of our love and inclusivity.

Stay tuned for updates about the future of Signs of Solidarity! And be sure to check out all the Phase 1 'Signs' here: https://www.signsofsolidarity.com/artists-locations/

good idea!

Hundreds of hats and scarves have been spotted in cities that are experiencing freezing temps this winter. The message attached to one scarf says: "I am not lost! If you are stuck out in the cold, please take this to keep warm!" Who thinks we should start something like this across VA, WV and NC?! You're loved, Michael and Erica

we hear you on this!  the. worst.

Snow is in the forecast and we’re not taking any chances. Some yarn bombers left a baby gift for one of our Antonio López García sculptures.

Who do we have to thank? Let us know – we’d like to invite the crafty crew responsible for a special viewing of our upcoming “Quilts and Color” exhibition!

Here’s something wacky and awesome that I’ve never seen done before.
