Outside of being the project manager for Project Rehab and assisting small businesses in the neighborhood, @RyanSpak also is making sure to do good in the community.

    Developing Community: The Spak Group redefines how a developer interacts with a neighborhood.
    For Ryan Spak, the recently-unveiled mural "Breaking Chains" at 500 S. 52nd St. isn't just a new work of art. It's also a testament to the way he thinks developers should work in Philadelphia.

"A more accurate headline would read: 'As INKY circulation shrinks, raises ad rates, Sheriff seeks more outlets to notify public, boost sales,' because that is, in fact what is really going on." http://ucreview.com/the-philadelphia-inquirer-seems-to-want-to-keep-public-notice-from-the-publ-p7824-1.htm

    The Philadelphia Inquirer seems to want to keep public notice from the public
    A few weeks ago, the Philadelphia Inquirer published a deep dive into the fascinating domain of public notice. This is advertising that is required by law to be published in a newspaper, and is generally paid for by a governmental entity or stakeholders in a legal proceeding.

The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history. However, the birth of cinematography in the mid-19th Century marked a monumental turning point in how visual artists addressed movement in their work.
