Exciting news! The Galleries at Moore has received a project grant from to present an immersive multimedia installation in collaboration with featuring Michelle Lopez ; Pandemonium.

Sited at Moore and the neighboring Fels Planetarium at the Franklin Institute, Pandemonium will be an immersive multimedia installation by Philadelphia-based artist Michelle Lopez that comprises animation, sound, and VR film, and uses new methods never before explored in her practice to create an animated, three-dimensional form. A destructive tornado that moves dynamically overhead offers a new visual skyscape of breathtaking violence, and replicates an immersive experience of being in the eye of the storm. The installation is scheduled to be on display in late 2025.

Course Facilitator: Julie Rainbow, MSW and MFA Candidate within Moore’s Socially Engaged Art program, is a research-based cultural creator who uses oral histories, multi-media, and research/archival materials to interpret and amplify the voices of the aging in modern society.  She believes that by listening deeply to another’s story, resilience emerges and that the work of “sharing one’s story” is an intimately relational process. Experience has taught her that emotional resonance is the common thread that connects and reminds us of our humanity.  As a therapist, she uses an eclectic approach to providing therapy in order to meet the unique needs of each client.

Did you know November is CraftMONTH? is celebrating Philadelphia’s robust craft scene during the eighth annual CraftMONTH, highlighted by the Public | Private Symposium at The Galleries at Moore & ! To register, visit CraftNOW Philadelphia]!

As private space becomes increasingly public via omnipresent virtual windows into our homes and studios, Public | Private offers the opportunity to think about how handmade elements and crafted objects communicate whether architectural space is shared or private, and to explore which processes and aspects of their creative identities artists choose to share with their audiences. This year’s Symposium will feature keynote speaker Michael J. Lewis, architectural critic for the Wall Street Journal. Programming will center on continually evolving concepts of shared versus personal space.

Other presenting institutions will include , , and varying divisions of the Philadelphia Mummers Parade. The symposium is free and open to the public. Save the date for November 11th!

November 1st! Register for “In Your Hands, Creating Transformation: A Jewelry Workshop with Hilary Hertzler”

Our emotional landscapes are shaped in relationship to the information we take in on a daily basis. The family structures that tie us to the past. The social norms and rules that we adhere to. That are imposed on us. The swing of information coming at us daily - cycling through our nervous systems at a rapid rate. The relationships that both buoy and bind us. 
 
We are taught to ignore how these things shape us. How they bounce through our bodies. The force and weight of their energies leaving behind both empty voids and knotted masses within us. Reshaping our forms - our flesh, our minds, our emotions, our spirit.
 
How do you create space to unwind these knots? Fill up these voids? How does your physical environment contribute to healing? What totems do you carry? What things do you leave behind? How do you tap into your creativity to carry this transformation forward?
 
Inspired by the narrative beadwork of Visionary Woman Joyce Scott, participants will unpack these questions and more during an immersive jewelry making workshop with Philadelphia based artist, Hilary Hertzler.  All experience levels are welcome, supplies will be provided.  Participants are encouraged to bring a special personal item to incorporate into their wearable sculpture.  This could be an item from nature, a piece of fabric, or anything that you may associate with healing or grounding.   Space is limited and registration is required.  Click the link in our bio to register for free!
