Ellen Tiberino, of art-family royalty, fighting to keep a legacy alive in gentrifying Powelton Village

Today that red brick rowhouse at 38th and Hamilton is the Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum, dedicated to her family’s work and that of neighborhood artists, some of whom are struggling to stick around.

For the past six months, Tiberino held intergenerational mosaic classes for children and seniors living around the 40th Street corridor of West Philadelphia. A 5-by-3-foot mosaic will be unveiled Friday and installed at PEC’s Families First building at 3939 Warren Street.

As part of the collaborative, Tiberino got access to studio space owned by PEC at 40th and Lancaster (an upgrade from her kitchen table). In the fall, portrait artist Michele Pierson will take...

Since then, PEC has built 20 apartments specifically for artists at 40th and Haverford. Tiberino is one of their tenants. The organization has added 260 affordable apartments to the neighborhood.

    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 and filled with music and art. Her late parents were the painters Joseph Tiberino and Ellen Powell Tiberino, dubbed the Frida and Diego of Philadelphia and the Wyeths of West Philadelphia.
