Philly’s amazing arts scene is on full display during the Democratic National Convention this week, from the colorful mural spanning 14 blocks on Broad Street to the 76ers mural currently going up at City Hall. Today, local students are sharing their own artistic interpretations of the city’s architecture in an online game as a "gift to DNC visitors."
Fresh Artists, a local art program, has just launched an online memory game called Silly City, featuring artwork interpreting the iconic architecture of Philadelphia, from the art museum to the Barnes Foundation to Boathouse Row. The kicker: They’re all made by local students in second through eighth grade.
The Fresh Artists program was created by local art teacher Robyn Miller and encourages children to interpret their community in a "frisky, artful manner." Some 400 pieces of artwork are featured in Silly City and five other games, two of which highlight artwork in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Foundation.
