Neighbor Ballads on the Street 

The Neighbor Ballads project is a public art installation available for the taking from honor boxes in South Philly. These seven poems celebrate figures from immigrant communities that continue to shape one of Philadelphia's most diverse and storied neighborhoods.

It's been a pleasure to meet and work with the friends, families and figures themselves that make this project a reality. Big ups to collaborator Erik Ruin for his visual design and box installation.

Where you can find them:

Antonio Isoleri- 9th & Carpenter
Frank Snock- 9th & Washington
Fabiola Canto- 9th & Ellsworth
Ba Nguyen- 9th & Passyunk
Bill McIntyre- 10th & Dickinson
Dorothy Allen- Cross & Passyunk
Joe Tayoun- Passyunk & Morris

The installation is a component of Journeys South, a neighborhood-wide Mural Arts Program initiative . Check out all the great installations that comprise Journeys South.
