Chinatown Beats — Asian Arts Initiative

Rachel Ishikawa

Over the course of my residency I have been collecting sounds myself, with the students of Asian Arts Initiative’s Youth Arts Workshop, and with other volunteers of the project. With this archive of sounds and the help of two amazing programmers, Ada Adhiyatma and Nicholas Anselmini, I am launching the Chinatown Beats Audio Sequencer, which is an online platform that allows participants to create beats using everyday sounds recorded by stakeholders of the Chinatown North community. This platform allows participants to playfully explore and relate to the neighborhood through music.

Drawing Tour of PAFA with Patrick Connors Tickets in Philadelphia, PA, United States

Saturday, September 16 at 9:45 AM – 12:30 PM

Furness & Hewitt’s architectural splendor on North Broad Street, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), will be the subject of a drawing tour with established artist, Patrick Connors. Completed in 1876, the National Historic Landmark building is the third structure to house PAFA and its exhibition galleries since the Academy’s inception as the country’s oldest art school. PAFA’s graduate roster boasts a who’s who in American art that spans over 200 years – some of whose work can be found in the museum that will constitute part of the tour.

As an artist, PAFA alum, and faculty member, Patrick Connors is uniquely qualified to lead this drawing tour and visit to the PAFA Museum. The event will begin with sketching the building exterior, which amalgamates the Second Empire, Renaissance Revival and Gothic Revival styles. Attendees will then draw the interior, and visit the PAFA museum. Registration for this drawing tour includes access to the museum for the remainder of the day.

Patrick Connors is a painter living in Philadelphia, and a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania. Awards include an Oxford Fellowship in Painting and Anatomy; a Franz & Virginia Bader Fund Grant, and a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant. Teaching and lecturing venues include Yale University Art Gallery, the New York Academy of Art graduate school, and the ICAA Beaux-Arts Atelier: Manhattan & Rome programs. His solo exhibition of landscapes inspired by Fairmount Park was presented by Gross McCleaf Gallery in April 2017.

Exploring David Lynch’s “Eraserhood” | Hidden City Philadelphia

“Philadelphia, more than any filmmaker, influenced me. It’s the sickest, most corrupt, decaying, fear-ridden city imaginable.” — David Lynch

When David Lynch moved to Philadelphia in the late 1960s to attend PAFA, he discovered a city that was both terrifying and inspiring. Explore the neighborhood that so electrified Lynch’s imagination in the company of two tour guides: Hidden City’s Peter Woodall and Lynch aficionado Bob Bruhin. During this one-and-a-half hour walking tour, we’ll delve into the neighborhood’s pre- and post-Lynch history, as well as the sights and sounds that inspired Lynch’s movies, particularly Eraserhead.

Questions, concerns, conundrums? Contact Hidden City project director Pete Woodall at 267-259-7112 or pwoodall@hiddencityphila.org
