Ife Nii Owoo unveils "Ready: A Pathway for Hope" at the re-opening of Logan Library

Grand Re-opening Celebration of Logan Library

On November 4 at 1:00 PM, celebrate the re-opening of the Logan Library Branch on 1333 Wagner Avenue, and witness the unveiling of Ife Nii Owoo’s artwork, "READ: A PATHWAY TO HOPE" (2014-2017). 

Read: A Pathway for Hope at the Logan Library focuses on the importance of literacy. Words from internationally renowned Philadelphia-based poet Trapeta Mayson are interwoven throughout the imagery. Ms. Nii Owoo began her work with conversations with people from Logan’s diverse community: African Americans born here, and immigrants from Africa, Cambodia, Vietnam, the Caribbean, and parts of South America. She used images and colors from patterns culturally significant to community members and drew inspiration from Madiba shirt patterns from South Africa and Mehndi designs from Africa, Middle East, and India.
