A New Kind of House

Friday, March 11, 2022

3:30 PM-5:00 PM

Exhibition from March 11, 2022 through March 2023. On March 11, the Anthony J. Drexel Picture Gallery in the Main Building will open A New Kind of House, a year-long exhibition celebrating eight years of Writers Room—a university-community literary arts program engaged in creative placemaking and art for social justice. The photography and writing of students and neighbors, displayed alongside and in conversation with pieces from The Drexel Collection, will engage in a rich dialogue about the changing face of our university and surrounding neighborhoods.
Writers Room is a diverse, intergenerational collective of students/alumni, faculty/staff, and neighborhood residents whose work demonstrates a desire for collaborative opportunities in our joint communities. A New Kind of House is created in partnership between Writers Room, ArtistYear and The Drexel Collection. Supported in part by Canon CSA and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund. The exhibition is curated by Lori Waselchuk. 
Please RSVP for the opening reception on March 11th from 4-6pm.
For more information on the Writers Room please visit our website at
The exhibition is free and open to the public Monday - Friday 3:30-5pm or by appointment.
