Funeral for a Home

Location:  Philadelphia, PA
United States
Project Description: 

Funeral for a Home commemorates the slow decline and gradual rebirth of Philadelphia’s housing stock and the lives these homes contain. Arranged by Temple Contemporary at Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Funeral for a Home aims to bring the community together to share the life and passing of a single home in the Mantua community through community gathering, dialogue, and reflection. Funeral for a Home is the product of a collaboration between local residents, Mount Vernon Manor, Inc., Mantua Civic Association, People’s Emergency Center, artists and historians, and Temple Contemporary.
