Philly Artist Census

Artwork by Leigh Werrell

In the Summer of 2018, I directed a project with Philly Stewards called the Philly Artist Census. The goal was to build an understanding of the resources, challenges and livelihoods of practicing visual artists in Philadelphia. Our motivation to assemble this information was and continues to be to clarify myths from truths about the greater Philly artist community.  We received over 500 responses from the Philadelphia artist community.
