<![CDATA[Artist Talk: Drew Leshko in Conversation with Conrad Benner]]> http://planphilly.com/events/2018/04/29/artist-talk-drew-leshko-in-conversation-with-conrad-benner April 29, 2018 2:00PM 4:00PM

Artist Talk:
Drew Leshko in Conversation with Conrad Benner

Sunday, April 29th • 2pm - 4pm

Doors open at 2:00pm
Talk starts at 2:30pm
Audience Q&A to follow

Learn more about Drew Leshko's process and what fueled the creation of his works in his current exhibition, "Sacred Lands," through a conversation with the Founder of Streets Dept and Fishtown-native, Conrad Benner.

ABOUT SACRED LANDS

"Sacred Lands" is a reference to Leshko's Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown, and its ancestral roots as the home to the indigenous Lenni-Lenape.

For more than a decade, Leshko painstakingly documented the rapid re-development occurring in his hometown of Philadelphia, specifically the historical neighborhood of Fishtown. As the forces of gentrification radically transform his neighborhood, Leshko's three-dimensional hyper-detailed sculptures serve as an all-too-necessary archive of the past. Highlighting decaying establishments in a transitional period (often not long before they are repurposed or razed), Leshko's paper and wood recreations act as artifacts of a bygone era, of a disappearing America.

For Sacred Lands, Leshko replicates the Kensington Soup Society, a soup kitchen which opened in 1844 and closed in 2008; Penn Treaty Metals, a metal recycling business spanning three generations, the name of which references William Penn's Treaty with the Native Lenape in 1683; and the Edward Corner Marine Merchandise Warehouse, with its hand-painted signs providing a physical reminder of Fishtown's waterfront history. Leshko's sculptures will be complemented by his small-scale reproductions of local signage (for bars, restaurants, VFW halls, and even strip clubs), as well as vintage photographs of historical buildings courtesy of the Philadelphia City Archives.

Leshko's 1:12 dollhouse scale replicas are meticulously crafted, requiring 120 to 160 studio hours to create. He begins each sculpture working from a single photograph as an image reference, but then will discard the photograph in mid-process, relying on memory to complete the piece. His miniatures act as singular physical documents of the buildings and businesses which are sadly proving unsustainable. Leshko's ongoing examination of gentrification and historical preservation (or lack thereof), asks the timely question "in a soon-to-be-forgotten America, what is worth preserving?".


ABOUT DREW LESHKO
Drew Leshko is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based artist. Working from observation and photographs, the artist painstakingly recreates everything from building facades to campers at a scale which may be familiar to some viewers as standard dollhouse spec; the treatment to Leshko's work is widely different. The minute detail of his work includes city detritus such as dumpsters and pallets, which are commentary of the ideas of what is worth preserving. Accumulations of typically overlooked details and minutiae like acid rain deposits and rust become beautiful adornments. Leshko’s work has been exhibited in galleries, and museums both nationally and internationally. His work is included in permanent collections including the Dean Collection (NYC), West Collection (Philadelphia), Iron State Development’s corporate collection (Hoboken), Urban Nation Museum (Berlin), and many private collections throughout the world.

ABOUT CONRAD BENNER
Conrad Benner is a photographer, podcaster, curator, and Founder of StreetsDept.com, a photo-blog that discovers art on the streets of Philadelphia. Conrad’s blog has been named one of the ‘Best Blogs for Travellers’ by The Guardian, and his photography highlighted by Mashable and Instagram, as well as printed in Time Magazine and the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Winner of the 2011 Philadelphia Geek Award for ‘Geek Culture Journalism,’ Conrad was named ‘Best Art Curator’ in 2014 by Philadelphia Magazine, ‘Rad Guy of the Year’ at the 3rd Annual Rad Awards in 2017, and one of ‘The 100 Most Influential People in Philadelphia’ by Philadelphia Magazine in 2017.

Conrad has used his growing influence not only to celebrate Philly’s burgeoning arts scene, but also to affect change. Most notably with his successful #SEPTA247 campaign, in 2014, which pushed the South Eastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) to reintroduce overnight weekend service to Philadelphia’s elevated and subway trains. As well as with his work on Next Stop: Democracy, a Knight Cities Challenge winning project, which aims to increase voter turnout in Philly with the help of local artists. And his work in 2016 with Covenant House Pennsylvania to create #AmICutOut, a pop-up art installation to help raise awareness and money to end youth homelessness in Philadelphia. And in the Trump-era, with his work co-organizing Signs of Solidarity, an inauguration day public art protest in opposition to hate and in protest of any and all that embolden divisiveness; co-organizing Collective Action, a silent art auction which raised over $23k for 10 local and national social justice organizations; and curator and organizer of Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition, a six-week exhibition, commissioned by Visit Philadelphia, which featured the work of 13 contemporary Philly-based artists who are challenging the current political and social status quo installed at 13 locations across Philadelphia’s Historic District.

Born and raised in the heart of the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia, Conrad has indeed eaten a WAWA hoagie for breakfast before, and on many occasions, and he’s not mad about it.

<![CDATA[SMPS Philadelphia - A/E/C Contracts and Finances]]> http://planphilly.com/events/2018/04/30/smps-philadelphia-a-e-c-contracts-and-finances April 30, 2018 5:00PM 7:30PM


Marketing professionals and technical members of firms are often asked to review contracts and fee proposals as part of their positions; however most of us do not have a background in accounting or law. Enter this presentation.


A/E/C Contracts and Finances will help you to round out your skill set by providing attendees with legal and financial overviews that you can then draw upon going forward in your career. The event will be split into two sessions with a representative from StambaughNess and Powell Trachtman presenting – both authoritative resources for the industry. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage presenters and drive the discussion. Don’t miss it!

Presenters:

Richard J. Davies, Esq., Shareholder, Powell Trachtman P.C.
Mr. Davies’ practice focuses on the representation of engineers, architects, and other design professionals, as well as manufacturers of complex products. He regularly acts as their consultant and advocate, particularly in respect to risk management, by negotiating their contracts, addressing potential claims on projects, and regularly defending them in actions and proceedings initiated against them.

Scott Hursh, CPA, CCIFP, CDA, Managing Principal, Architectural and Engineering Group, StambaughNess
As Managing Principal, Scott is recognized as an authority in financial management, tax and government contract consulting for architectural and engineering firms. His advanced experience in the application and interpretation of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), AASHTO Audit Guide, Cost Accounting Standards, and AE tax issues guides firms towards minimizing tax obligations and boosting profitability. An avid outdoorsman, Scott is equally at home on the front lines with his clients, discovering the distinct characteristics that make their company tick. His passion for the AE industry is well known and often showcased at trade organization conferences and events where he is a frequent presenter on AE related topics.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will understand how their marketing materials can inadvertently create an unreasonably high standard of care for the performance of their firm’s contractually-agreed-upon services; to reach that understanding the attendees will learn about some of the statutes and case law applicable to the delivery of architectural, engineering and similar professional design services.
  2. Attendees will learn how to manage the expectations created by their marketing materials so their firms can deliver services at a standard that is consistent with those materials and reasonable under the circumstances so they avoid claims based on a failure to meet those
  3. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to price projects to improve profitability
  4. Attendees will gain an understanding on how to manage projects throughout the project cycle

Credits: Approved for 1.5 CPSM Credits and/or 1.5 AIA Credits

Sir Adjaye is the principal and founder of Adjaye Associates. Born in Tanzania to Ghanaian parents, his broadly ranging influences, ingenious use of materials, and sculptural ability have established him as an architect with an artist’s sensibility and vision. His largest project to date, the $540 million Smithsonian Institute National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened on the National Mall in Washington DC in fall of 2016 and was named Cultural Event of the Year by the New York Times. In 2017, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and was recognized as one of the 100 most influential people of the year by TIME magazine.

This annual event raises funds to support the Charter High School for Architecture + Design, a legacy project of the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of Architects founded in 1999.

Art in the Open (AiO), presented through the PNC Arts Alive initiative, is a biennial citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations, and their relationships with the urban environment. The program, now entering its tenth year, was designed to shape community through art experiences that bridge the Philadelphia’s outdoor spaces, natural areas, and historic waterways for the enjoyment of the general public.

Join us from May 18 to 20, 2018 as a new group of up to 40 jury-selected artists and collaborative teams working in all media take to the Schuylkill River Trail, from the historic Fairmount Water Works to South Street, to develop artwork that will inspire new ways of seeing the river and the city it runs through.

From dawn until dusk over the course of three days, visitors of all ages are invited to witness new works of art evolve while engaging with a vibrant community of artists--in some cases becoming part of the creative process. Artists' working times will vary; most activity takes place between 9 am and 5 pm.

Partner organizations throughout Philadelphia are teaming up with AiO to extend the experience through a series of related programs leading up to and during the event, showcasing the vibrant community of working artists, galleries and institutions that make our City a major urban art center. Keep an eye on our Events Page for details on all of the action!
