Commissioned by the Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations as part of the NEA’s Art Works program. Tell Me Something Good was created in collaboration with the New Kensington CDC and Somerset Neighbors for Better Living. The project supported a community garden located in the “North of Lehigh” neighborhood through garden improvements and a opening celebration. At this celebration, community members were asked to “tell me something good” about their lives and their community. The words they said created a free-form poem across the chain-link fence of the garden. The portraits taken will be displayed at the NKCDC’s new affordable housing development, Orinoka House, in 2018.
