Metro Gallery 250 Presents “Not Only From Olney”

February 9 @ 12:00 pm - March 1 @ 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

Philadelphia based nonprofit Dreamline, in partnership with Olney Charter High School, is set to exhibit digitally interactive works on fabric by students from around the world.

Join us at Metropolitan Gallery 250 in Rittenhouse this every Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 pm until March 1, 2020, as we celebrate the hopes and dreams of these local and global students. All are welcome!

Under the direction of artist and teacher Joy Waldinger, ninth-grade students at Olney Charter High School created 120 works on fabric. Along with these local student works, Dreamline added similar pieces by rural university students in the Veracruz region in Mexico, Haiti, Zambia, China, and other locations throughout the United States.

Visitors can immerse themselves in the “Fabric of Dreams”. Surrounded by hundreds of images on cloth with text expressing visions of change and hope for the future, exhibitions like this one delve into the creative process. And thanks to technology, each visitor will be able to use their phone as a listening device. Hear students voice their dreams and pinpoint each work’s place of origin. 

All student work has been created through participation in Dreamline, a program supported by Philadelphia based nonprofit Cloud Cloth Education. Dreamline invites students to share their dreams with the world through art, words, technology, and community action. For more information, visit dreamline.org.
