From Kensington With Love: Behind the Veil

This group exhibition focuses on the voices of Kensington residents from diverse sectors who have shared their stories, experiences, and visions with three community artists in a series of workshops at various locations: Congreso, Julia De Burgos Elementary School, Kensington Storefront, Orinoka Civic House, Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School, and Somerset Villas.

The work has been created to amplify the light and love that exist in Kensington and showcase the tenacity, healing, creativity, strength, hope, and beauty that permeate the community. The narratives and messages are revealed through a tapestry of mixed media, painting and photography by artists Katsí Miranda-Lozada, Ken McFarlane, and Jerry Puryear.

The project is a collaboration between We CAN (NKCDC, Impact Services, and HACE’s joint Innovations In Community Based Crime Reduction) and Mural Arts in partnership with Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services. It is supported by the City of Philadelphia Office of Anti-Violence.
