About the Benefit:
This past September/October, the Bridgette Mayer Gallery organized and curated an exhibition featuring paintings, photographs, collages, and mixed media from over 200 artists in order to support Friends of the Rail Park, a nonprofit organization that transforms abandoned highline railway tracks into public spaces in Philadelphia. 25% of the exhibition proceeds went directly to benefit Phase II of the Friends of the Rail Park three-phase plan to renovate the train tracks into green spaces. The aim of the Rail Park is to serve as a community connector, which promotes arts, education, recreation, health and wellness to the local community.
The exhibition was made possible with the help of key sponsors including Arts + Crafts Holdings, which donated the exhibition space. Arts + Crafts Holdings is located at 600 Spring Garden Street, Suite 200 and invests in Philadelphia’s creative commercial district. The company revitalizes historic buildings and urban spaces to create an inspired space for entrepreneurs.
In addition, other key sponsors contributed to the exhibition’s success: CRW Graphics, Philadelphia Style Magazine, Tierney Communications, Ampersand, Artists & Craftsman Supply, Roy-Pitz Brewing Company, Stateside Urbancraft Vodka, and 13th Street Kitchens.
