DesignPhiladelphia Kick Off Party, See MERGE and more thru 10/14

The 13th Annual DesignPhiladelphia began last week with a kick off party on Jefferson University Campus.  DesignPhiladelphia teamed up with A.C. Moore and five curated design teams to debut a series of installations at the party. The pieces aim to “spark conversation and pique curiosity.” A notable piece was the MERGE art installation

MERGE art installation is meant to symbolize the merger of Philadelphia University and Thomas Jefferson University and was created by students from the Finishing Trades Institutes and Jefferson University. MERGE is at Lubert Plaza at 1001 Locust Street
