Neighbor Ballads

The Neighbor Ballads project is a public art installation available for the taking from honor boxes in South Philly. These seven poems celebrate figures from immigrant communities that continue to shape one of Philadelphia's most diverse and storied neighborhoods.

It's been a pleasure to meet and work with the friends, families and figures themselves that make this project a reality. Big ups to collaborator Erik Ruin for his visual design and box installation.

Where you can find them:

Antonio Isoleri- 9th & Carpenter
