If you're in Philadelphia for the DNC, or just curious about the art scene there in Philly, you might want to start following hometown artist, Hawk Krall
and check out his website. Hawk is doing his part with his contribution to a community arts project called DNC Donkeys
. Local artists were asked by Artjawn
to decorate a total of 57 fiberglass donkeys placed around the city that represent every US state, territory, and Washington D.C. (Hawk's version above.)
Hawk's poster for Next Stop Democracy
promoting voter engagement is featured in an AIGAPhiladelphia
exhibition at the City Hall Art Gallery, Room 116. Hawk also tells us that there is possibly some sort of "dumpster diver" art event happening there on Wednesday!
And if you are interested in the local food scene, Hawk knows all about it and then some. He does a monthly column for Saveur Magazine
featuring his favorite sandwiches, one of which is of course the Philly Cheesesteak.
