Empty storefronts along South Street offered to artists to serve as temporary exhibition spaces. And we’ve got one of them. That’s right. The Philadelphia Dumpster Divers, of which I am a proud member, along with Betsy, have set up what is being called Diver Central at 734 South Street in Philadelphia. The Divers have packed it full of amazing art made from trash and found objects. (Click thumbnails to view larger images.)
So, come on in and check it out. For the next two months (March – April), and longer if the spaces haven’t rented by then, we’ll be open to the public every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 3 – 8 pm.
Works by myself and Betsy, as well as Alden Cole, Neil Benson, Ellen Sall, John Lindsay, Joel Spivak, Diane Keller, Randy Dalton, Toni Nash, Ellen Benson, and many others adorn the walls and floor. And just about everything is for sale.
The Inquirer ran an article on us and the storefronts project. Perhaps you saw it. If not, here’s a link to it online and a link to a PDF if you’d like to download it. One way of the other, we hope you will take the time to drop by and say hello and buy some art from the Philadelphia Dumpster Divers.
