Interview with Sarah McEneaney

I had a chance to speak with Sarah McEneaney. In 2003 McEneaney and John Struble founded the first nonprofit group, the Reading Viaduct Project, to advocate for turning the Reading Viaduct into a public park. Viaduct Greene recognized the connection between the Viaduct and the Pennsylvania Railroad freight line west of Broad Street. In 2013 the two groups merged and today they are known as Friends of the Rail Park. Sarah is a visual artist and community activist who lives and works in Philadelphia. Her paintings are characterized by their autobiographical content, detailed brushwork, and brilliant color. McEneaney's intimate subject matter focuses on daily scenes from her home, studio, travels, and neighborhood. Her work is included in public collections such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art and she has received numerous grants and awards. McEneaney is represented by Locks Gallery, Philadelphia and Tibor de Nagy Gallery, New York.
