Today I have an opening at the North Star Bar on 27th and Poplar for the Fairmounts Arts Crawl.
to better describe the crawl this is what the Philadelphia Weekly said about it:
While Fairmount doesn’t have the bohemian cred of Northern Liberties or Fishtown, the neighborhood does support the arts. Each year, the Fairmount Arts Crawl showcases the work of local artists in neighborhood businesses. The event began five years ago when a group of people—both artists and business owners—felt there was nowhere to showcase local work. “This is a really good example of a community getting together without any city funding, just rallying around each other and creating this type of event,” says Crawl organizer Sharon Tice. The Arts Crawl showcases everything from painting and pottery to handmade crafts and jewelry in Fairmount businesses, including the Urban Saloon and Jack’s Firehouse. A.K.
