Unveiling | 6 PM
Afro-Cuban Rumba | 7 PM
iMPeRFeCT Gallery will be unveiling its new sidewalk mural, JUMP! right outside the gallery in Germantown. Designed by Rocio Cabello during this summer, it was carried out with the help of wonderful volunteer neighbors/friends/children since early September.
The mural is a jumping game without rules for the children that traffic the area. It has golden stepping stones that help you get from one end of the block to the other, surrounded by folk patterns from different corners of the world that represent nature, and it includes a section that is a homage to Dr. Seuss. This project was made possible by a micro grant from the Germantown United CDC meant to beautify and revitalize the neighborhood. JUMP! is dedicated to the children of Germantown and to the child in all of us, as Rocio hopes to see grown ups jumping too.
The unveiling will start at 6 PM and the celebration will transform into an Afro-Cuban Rumba, a gathering of drummers and singers that share this call and response traditions here in Philadelphia. This is a family friendly event.
