A loving year long tour of historic Rittenhouse Square, featuring the video work of Burnell Yow! and original music (and piano playing) by Betsy Alexander.
We got a front page write-up by Emily Guendelsberger at Philly’s own City Paper, with tons of photos along with a story of contrast as she joins the Dumpster Divers in two different realms.
Don Brewer has some great photos and background about the Archives Alchemy show and how the Dumpster Divers and the National Archives of Philadelphia got together to create this wonderful collection of art.

Peter Crimmins at WHYY has written a very nice article called “Pieces of the past become modern art at National Archives,” about our Archives Alchemy show at the National Archives in downtown Philadelphia. It includes some wonderful photos from the Opening Reception.
