Everyone is a Collector Panel at B.PHL Fest

InLiquid is pleased to be apart of the first annual B.PHL Innovation Fest! B.PHL features three jam-packed days of workshops and exhibits focused on arts and culture, science, business, social impact, health care, and more. Our panel on October 17th from 6-8 pm discusses our 20th year anniversary motto: Everyone is a Collector.

With affordable housing and workspaces, Philadelphia has become a destination for artists from around the world. Artists of today are bringing life back to once abandoned manufacturing spaces, in a reflection of Philadelphia’s history as the workshop to the world and of the city’s record innovation in art and design. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, InLiquid Art + Design will present a facilitated panel discussion with visual artist Michele Kishita, art advisor Barbara Harberger, collector Maria Pantalone, director of Fine Art Auctions at Rago Auctionhouse Meredith Hilferty, and Executive Director of InLiquid Rachel Zimmerman.

Participants can add to the creative economy, starting or adding to their own collection with locally made art at the event’s small pop-up shop where everyone can be a collector!

Moderator: Clare Finin
Location: Oar Pub in the South Tower of Park Towne Place

Val Rossman has been creating drawings and paintings in her studio in Philadelphia for the last 25 years.  Her work has gone through various stages, however, her wonderful sense of color combined with a lyrical and often whimsical mentality have always infused her drawings with a lush  and personal aura.  The combination of rich and unexpected hues and gestures with sometimes questioning formats give the work an unforgettable presence.
