RESCHEDULED – Making Music from Archives at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Making Music from Archives at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Featuring the work of: Andrea Clearfield, Willhem Echevarria, Ted Houghtaling, Max Lawrence & Maurice Wright

This event will feature five artists who each composed original works of music inspired by the collection of Mary Elizabeth Hallock Greenewalt, an eccentric Philadelphia inventor and musician. Greenewalt developed an art form that she called “nourathar,” which uses an organ to display colored light scored to music using her own custom notation system. In order to fulfill her musical pursuits, Greenewalt entered the engineering world and was awarded several patents. In the 1930s, she spent much of her time in court, suing others for patent infringement. The Historical Society of Pennsylvania holds extensive records on Greenewalt’s life.

Melt. Down. installation by Bradford Haubrich

Former Space 1026 intern and current friend and supporter Bradford Haubrich has undertaken an interesting project.  Melt.  Down. is a melting art installation in a store front window in South Philly.  Beginning in early March, the “melts” have morphed the once snow-y landscape into a brighter, colorful assemblage.

The next change will occur tomorrow, March 29th and hopefully this current cold spell will take the hint.  For more info, check out Brad’s blog – Drawing the World.

Melt. Down.
764 s. 9th street Philadelphia PA (9th and Catherine, one house in from the corner)
