Matthew Borgen @ First Person Arts tonight in Philly

Matthew Borgens Wing Rack

Matthew Borgen's "Wing Rack"

Ordinarily, I try not to upstage the podcast posts for at least 24 hours, but I have to make an exception this time.

Why? Because I wanted to give the following event a plug during the podcast and forgot to do so…and it’s tonight so it really can’t wait.

OK…here’s the deal…tonight at the Gershman Y at 401 S. Broad Street in Philadelphia (Google Maps), a really cool guy I know by the name of Matthew Borgen is taking part in a First Person Arts Salon event. He will be talking about “The Wing Rack,” a multimedia, autobiographical installation he exhibited at the 621 Gallery in Tallahassee, Florida, a few months ago. Matthew will be speaking along with other artists during the program.

Here are the details:

FIRST PERSON SALON: Wed., Aug. 13th, 7-9pm, at the Gershman Y
An evening of innovative art and conversation. Featuring…

  • Muralist ERIC OKDEH
  • Storyteller JULIET WAYNE
  • Multi-media artist MATTHEW BORGEN

$5-10 sliding scale admission.
Beer (made possible by Flying Dog) and refreshments available for donation.
All ages welcome.

I wish I could attend, but I have a work commitment tonight (it’s just attending a Trenton Thunder baseball game, though…it’s not like I’ll be doing any work).
