PhilaMOCA is hosting the eighth annual installment of its critically-acclaimed ERASERHOOD FOREVER exhibit – an artistic celebration of the work of David Lynch. From paintings of your favorite TWIN PEAKS characters to paper mache’d nitrous tanks, we’re looking for anything that celebrates the filmography of one of America’s greatest living filmmakers.
The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 9 from 6-9 PM and will be on view for all PhilaMOCA events through the end of the month. Please note that acceptance into the art show does not grant artists admission to the November 2 Lynch-related event.

City of Philadelphia information on the heat emergency :
The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has extended its Heat Health Emergency declaration through 11PM on Monday, July 22, 2019.
To learn more about what happens when the City declares a Heat Health Emergency, click here.
When daytime temperatures reach the 90s or triple digits and are accompanied by high humidity for two or more days, heat-related illness (e.g., dehydration, heat stroke) is more common and a heat health emergency is declared. During a Heat Health Emergency, it’s important to check on loved ones, neighbors, and pets and look out for each other.
During the Heat Health Emergency, the following heat-related resources will remain available:
– The Philadelphia Corporation for Aging will maintain its Heatline – (215)-765-9040 – which residents can call to get health and safety tips and talk to medical professionals about heat-related illness. The Heatline is open from 8:30AM to 12AM on 7/19, 7/20 and 7/21 and from 8:30AM to 11PM on 7/22.
- – Cooling centers – including libraries, senior centers and recreation centers – will stay open later. To find a cooling center near you, click here.
- – The Office of Homeless Services will continue its outreach. If you see someone on the street that needs help, call (215) 232-1984 or 911.
- – Pet safety measures will continue to be enforced. To report a dog left outside in very hot weather, call (267) 385-3800.

If you’re traveling through or near Callowhill, there’s a new building under construction that’s quite eye catching. Sure, any construction in any part of town makes our radar bleep, but this particular project would draw the attention of even the most oblivious phone gazer due to one very specific characteristic- its sheathing. Most wood-framed new construction gets covered in either plywood or green zip system panels, but the project at 1001 Buttonwood St. is sheathed in something much shinier.
Mark your calendars to help us celebrate our growth, support our future, and honor people who have helped advocate for public greenspace, locally and nationally.
