A Socially Distanced Art Project
PHILADELPHIA — (February 8, 2021) – Physical separation didn’t mean lack of artistic collaboration for over 100 artists from around the country and beyond.
Unprecedented Times, an exhibition inspired by the surrealist game Exquisite Corpse, features the work of artists who collaborated remotely, digitally and through the mail over the last six months.
An open call for participants yielded over 100 interest artists located everywhere from Philadelphia, Miami and Denver to as far away as London and Helsinki. Artists were broken up into small groups to collectively assemble a work of art across a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, collage, fibers, assemblage, sculpture and writing.
The exhibit is available for in-person viewing through a private appointment at email@example.com
The Science Center will also feature some of the participating artists at the Virtual First Thursday taking place during Venture Café Philadelphia’s February 4thThursday Gathering. Guests will be able to interact with over 15 art galleries including the Science Center’s own Esther Klein Gallery, in an informal virtual setting.
Additionally, the February 11th virtual reception during Venture Cafe, will feature presentations from select artists on their project contributions.
Exquisite Corpse’s closing reception will be tentatively scheduled for April. Please visit EKG’s website for updates.

NATURphilosophie is curated by 1241 Carpenter artist, Brooke Hine. This group exhibition showcases artists that depict the natural world through drawing, wire-sculpture, ceramics, and glass. These artists merge both art and science and allow the viewer to connect with the natural world around them as if you were looking through a microscopic lens.
“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and science.”

Anthony Sbarro was chosen as the “B Nice B Cause” liberty bell winner of 2019. Anthony, originally from New Jersey, has resided in Philly for the last 14 years. And STILL this friendly gent has compassion for the people around him– in addition to a few businesses in the Philadelphia area. More than once he has saved me from AAA who has left me for 5 hours with a broken down car. He also helps places like The Abbaye and Love City Brewing with their sound system. This isn’t his job, he’s just that caring of a person. He understands and believes that if you are good to others- it’ll come back to you. If we supported one another instead of cutting each other down, we’d be living in a more pleasant place. Sbarro(no relationship to the pizza chain(mob)) is also a talented photographer and cook. He has an amazing website called, Eat Up Kitchen. Check it out! Congrats, Anthony!
Q: Do you enjoy living in Philly? A: Yes
Q: Do you think you’ve changed because of living in Philly? A: Yes. The great thing about living in Philly is it’s neighborhoods. You have these built-in families whose embrace spands a few zip codes. This city and the people I’ve met here helped me find the comfort of my own skin. I’ve been loved and rejected and applauded and challenged. Through thick and thin, Philly is my warm and cozy spot I call home.
Q: Did you go to college? A: Yes, Mercer County College with a degree in graphic design.
Q: Do you currently use your degree? A: No
Q: Do you feel like you go out of your way to help local businesses? A: I don’t go out of my way, but there are a few bars and restaurants in the area where I help with social media, web design, photography, and audio/videos. I’m always happy to help friends with any knowledge I have.
Q: If you could tell your younger self a thing or two, what would it be? A: Don’t be afraid to do the hard things and read more books. (Interesting)
Q: Do you have any hobbies? A: Yes, photography and my cooking blog. Eat Up Kitchen is where I photograph and write about recipes. My goal is to bring this skill out to local food purveyors and help them tell their stories. It’s important to know where your food comes from and to know how to prepare it.
Q: Last question. As a kind person of Philly, what is a good quote for others to abide by? A: Have empathy for one another. Especially those you disagree with.
