Michelle Angela Ortiz in Philadelphia, Goddamn

Michelle Angela Ortiz  (ACG '13, ACG '12, LTA '08, ACG '05) is showing work in Philadelphia, Goddamn at Little Berlin (2430 Coral Street). The Opening Reception is Friday, October 14 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.

“You can’t help it. An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.” -Nina Simone

The ability for street art to be shared across digital platforms is transforming both public reactions and generational social cognizance. In a society where those retaining power hope to control cultural environments and social exchanges, artists become creators of repeatable images of truth.

#PhiladelphiaGoddamn will feature art and artists that seek to expose, reveal, represent, and reflect the truths of those marginalized, hurt and left behind, through public murals, videos, as well as intimate works.
