Uprooted/reRooted by Marion Wilson

Description

Artist Marion Wilson, in collaboration with Mural Arts Restored Spaces, is pleased to present Uprooted/reRooted.

 

Uprooted/reRooted—an initiative to reimagine an under-utilized courtyard at William Cramp Elementary School (3449 N Mascher St). In collaboration with a design team of community members, Wilson has transformed the outdoor space into a metaphorical community garden and ethno-botanical teaching space with support from Philadelphia Orchard Project; and a botanical mural that incorporates artwork by students, and co-designed with muralist, Eurhi Jones. A public unveiling of the courtyard and building-sized mural will take place on October 23, 2019.

 

Mural Arts’ Restored Spaces initiative by Mural Arts Philadelphia, led by Shari Hersh, uses socially engaged public art as a platform for neighborhood change. The award-winning model operates at the intersection of public art, design, the built environment and green space, focusing on environmental issues and the sustainable revitalization of community spaces.
