Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, June 1, from 2 pm to 4 pm.
 

“Commemorations” is an outdoor exhibition that celebrates the art of remembrance through the vibrant display of artist-designed flags. Inspired by the pioneering artwork of Ree Morton and her 1975 installation “Something in the Wind,” this exhibition invites sixteen (16) selected artists to create large pennant flags that honor individuals, places, or concepts worthy of celebration.

Featured artists include Amy Boone-McCreesh, Jordan Buschur, Alex Ebstein, Austin Eddy, Kati Gegenheimer, Mark Gibson, James Heimer, Madeleine Herisson-Leplae, Duwenavue Santé Johnson, Alicia Link, Caitlin McCormack, Addison Namnoum, Brice Peterson, Gordon Stillman, Katharine Suchan, Keo Luu.

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) proudly collaborated with local, national, and international artists to produce these flags. Artists were encouraged to submit proposals that encapsulate the spirit of “commemoration,” crafting designs that pay homage to the influential figures and moments in their lives, much like Morton’s flags.

Spruce Street Harbor Park, known for its colorful lights, relaxing hammocks, and diverse culinary experiences, provides the perfect backdrop for this festive showcase.
