Philadelphia Freedom: Stories, Slides, and Serenades at the Institute of Contemporary Art
"Philadelphia Freedom" celebrates summer with an outdoor evening on the terrace of art, stories, slides and serenades.
Featuring Shelley Spector, Kenneth Finkel, Nicole McEwan, Art Casciato and host Tom Devaney, who will tell their own stories of the underdog, the proud, the loyal, the real and gritty. Join us for tales from the 215 as we celebrate the humor, heart, and the hard-core contradictions that make Philadelphia such a great and heartbreaking city. Enjoy a serenade from the Broad Street Mummers-costumes and all. This is followed by "Philadelphia Freedom," a slide show by photographer Zoe Strauss with images of the overlooked details of life in this city. Then at dusk, a screening of Strut! that spotlights the world of the Mummers.
