Tuesday 5/28: Keep Youth Free Opening Featuring City Love at Philadelphia Center / Architecture + Design

John Vettese, WXPN - The Key •

What needs to happen to create a world where youth are not locked up in prisons, and instead allowed to work towards their fullest potential? That’s the existential question at the center of Keep Youth Free, a three-day exhibition sponsored by Juvenile Law Center, the Village of Arts and Humanities, and many other likeminded nonprofits, opening this Tuesday night at the Philadelphia Center / Architecture + Design in Center City. In addition to films, photographs, mobile murals, and other digital ephemera created by teens, the exhibit has an interactive component asking the community to weigh in with their thoughts. The opening night reception features musical performances, including City Love, a new collaborative education and social justice project of Hardwork Movement’s Sterling Duns and singer-songwriter Caselli Jordan. // 5 p.m., Free, AA // INFO — John Vettese
