For the last six months, artist Ellen Tiberino has been using Mural Arts' Neighborhood Time Exchange studio space in West Philadelphia to hold intergenerational mosaic classes. Tonight, the mosaic will be unveiled at 3939 Warren Street:

    Ellen Tiberino, of art-family royalty, fighting to keep a legacy alive in gentrifying Powelton Village
    The Powelton Village house that Ellen Tiberino grew up in was a revolving door of interesting characters filled with music and art. Her parents were the painters Joseph Tiberino and Ellen Powell Tiberino, dubbed the Frida and Diego of Philadelphia and the Wyeths of West Philadelphia.

As Drexel transforms University City, communities nearby prepare for gentrification

Drexel’s neighbors don’t really want to block the university’s growth or the nearby developments. Most talk excitedly about the economic opportunities nearby, the new park, and the preservation and renovation of the old Philadelphia Bulletin building at 30th and Market streets.

    As Drexel transforms University City, communities nearby prepare for gentrification
    When Schuylkill Yards was first announced - Brandywine Realty Trust's proposal to turn 14 acres of largely empty, Drexel University-owned land between the college and 30th Street Station into 7 million square feet of high-end office space, research labs, and retail - Drexel President John Fry made a pledge to the university's neighbors: "This 20-year, $3.5 billion project will benefit thousands of low-income families without disrupting the fabric of their neighborhoods."
