There is a reason The Edgewater community prides itself on being on the edge of everything. Living at the Edgewater puts you literally within walking distance from some of the city’s premiere educational attractions.
One of those is The Moore College of Art and Design. If you are feeling a little artsy, take a short stroll from the Edgewater down to 20th and the Parkway to indulge in the latest pieces from contemporary and modern artists in one of the Moore’s galleries.
Opening on September 10th, The Moore Galleries will be hosting the works of art historian and President of Spelman College, Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell. Nationally recognized as an author and editor, creator of the nation’s first Fine Art’s Museum for People of Color, and a Presidential appointee of Arts and Humanities, Campbell’s many written works will be made available in The Moore Gallery reading library.
Also being featured in The Moore Fall Gallery is muralist Meg Saligman. Saligman is known around the nation as one of the Top 10 Muralists by The Public Art Review. Here is Philadelphia, she is best known for her 1997 landmark mural “Common Threads”, located at the corner of Broad and Spring Garden Streets.
Come see both of these Visionary Women Awardees displayed at The Moore College, a seven block walk from The Edgewater. Just further proof of how the Edgewater remains on the edge of everything.
