March 2, 2020

I’m spending most of my days in the computer/digital studio at the Fleisher Art Memorial (aka the Loom Room), in the archives of the Philadelphia Art Museum, in churches, pastry shops, cemeteries, and just moving around the streets of Philadelphia as I learn the rhythm and flow of this place. The staff, instructors, and students are generous and welcoming. I’m intrigued and inspired by an institution conceived in 1898 by Samuel and Helen Fleisher as a “sanctuary”… for those, he said, whose “lives are unavoidably cast upon a background of routine and sameness—the world’s work must be done—to them should be offered pastures where beauty and inspiration may be gathered, places where rich and poor alike may give expression to their finer emotions—playgrounds for the soul.”  

Romantic ideals, yes, and perhaps even more relevant in today’s world. As I consider what form my work will take, it’s a great adventure to explore how this spirit is manifest today — at Fleisher, and also the rich creative culture of Philadelphia that incubates such things.

 I’m happy to welcome curator Helen Molesworth as an advisor to Margin Media. Helen is a brilliant thinker, writer, and spiritual adventurer. Her museum work challenges the status quo, and she consistently opens new

ways of understanding and experiencing art and practices of creating.  I’m proud to count her one among us!  The full roster is here.

You may have watched Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar’s triumphant moment  when their documentary, American Factory, won the Oscar for best documentary (and Julia’s speech picked by the LA Times as one of the 7 ”must see moments!”).  The Obama’s and their new production entity sure picked a winner. Steve and Julia were lead producers on our Localore production out of Dayton, OH  — Reinvention Stories. True to their mission, they dedicated themselves then, as now, to their working class neighbors, finding new stories of hope, resilience and faith rising from a rust belt city.  I’m full of pride and joy for them. 

And…I know you’re wondering about my amazing food adventures in Philly. I’m blissing out with Tuesday mid-day pasta with gravy (complimentary glass of wine), a Sri Lankan feast, and life-altering Khinkali – Georgian dumplings.  A too-good-to-be true burger and soul-filled ramen.  Follow Jeff Towne, my food guru, on Instagram.

Light, love,

— ss
