Apartment Walks - Home: Collaborative Interior Design Installations
Join InLiquid at Park Towne Place Museum District Residences for Apartment Walks! Curated by designers in partnership with DesignPhiladelphia, as well as the staging of artwork by InLiquid artist members, four apartments in the East Tower of Park Towne Place Museum District Homes will be transformed into designed interior installations that are open to the public and centered upon the theme of "Home."
Each of three staged penthouse installations are comprised of the efforts of various designers, local furniture stores, local textile designer refurbishers, and InLiquid artists. Participants include: Christina Henck of Henck Designs, Dane Decor, and Woke Souls — alongside InLiquid Artists Bobbie Adams, Linda Dubin Garfield, Erica Harney, and Sandi Neiman Lovitz, running concurrently with Philadelphia Open Studio Tours.
The fourth of the penthouse apartments will house an collaborative installation between three InLiquid artists: Melissa Maddonni Haims, Donna Quinn, and Constance Culpepper.
Haims, Quinn, and Culpepper's installation examines the common theme of their work collectively: domesticity, personal space and perspective. Each of these three artists shares the conception of "home" as a collection of things (furniture, wallpaper, tableware, etc.) that fill a vacant space before it becomes a home. Whether the home is broken, being put back together, or overly full, the spaces in between these "things" are where we create our lives.
"Designing Historic Spaces" on October 13th, 6-8pm, is a panel discussion with Meghan Dougovito of Tryba Architects and Cindy Hamilton of Heritage Consulting Group. The conversation will provide a voice for how aesthetic choices in architecture and design intersect with technical concerns in urban planning and renovation. Dougovito and Hamilton will speak to their substantial roles in planning and designing the redevelopment of Park Towne Place, and will also share ideas and stories about other historic building projects in which they have participated.
"Wine and Design" pop-up-shop on October 14th, 6-9pm sponsored in part by Vintage Wine Bar and Bistro, featuring the work of Emily Squires Levine, John Y. Wind, Stacey Lee Weber, and Nino Brand.
In partnership with Aimco, InLiquid curates rotating exhibitions and organizes engaging public programming at Aimco's mid-century modern complex, Park Towne Place, which offers upscale high-rise living in Center City. InLiquid is also helping to project manage Park Towne’s acquisition of new works for their permanent collection. The arts advisory relationship is part of a redevelopment initiative by Park Towne to become a vital member of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway cultural community.
The Apartment Walks are open to the public during the designated hours, as well as by appointment on the 6th, 8th - 16th.
