Gallery Artist Tim McFarlane is brightening up Philadelphia by designing artwork for a new community fridge located at On Lok House, which serves low-income seniors. This fridge is one of many recently installed around Philadelphia to provide increased access to fresh food in food-insecure neighborhoods and communities.
The project was done in collaboration with Urban Outfitters, Misfits Market, and Mama-Tee, the company responsible for the Community Fridge movement in Philadelphia. The sides of the fridge are decorated with some of McFarlane's bold colors and iconic motifs, and its yellow front bears the message “Community Fridge: Take what you need. Leave what you don’t.” McFarlane’s art is sure to bring attention to the initiative and joy to all who come by to use the fridge.
