The Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board is pleased to announce a new installation that celebrates the diverse artists within Montgomery County at the region’s premier shopping destination, King of Prussia Mall. The large-scale display, which is located in the mall’s connector corridor across from Macy’s, highlights BIPOC makers in the Valley Forge area and will be on display from February 1st through March 2022.
Since the start of the pandemic, the VFTCB has aimed to shine the spotlight on Montco artists and arts organizations. This past September, the board organized the first-ever Arts Montco Week to promote the wide variety of arts and culture available that visitors and residents can experience in Montgomery County. Local traditional artists, musicians, theatre houses, museums, comedians, and more came together to offer various events, promotions and deals exclusively offered here. The Arts Montco Wall comes to KOP Mall patrons as a continuation of that partnership and celebration of the arts in Montgomery County.
The second iteration of the Arts Montco Wall focuses solely on the work of Black and POC artists who produce their work in the Montgomery County region. The wide variety of pieces come from prominent local artist(s) James Atkins (Moody Jones Gallery), Ruth Bridges (Moody Jones Gallery), Shelby Brisbane (Montgomery County Community College), Abigail Coachi (Ursinus College), Andromeda J. Cook (Moody Jones Gallery), Taylor Morris (Moody Jones Gallery), Jailene Rodriguez (Ursinus College), Mydera Taliah (Haya Ground Studio), Eric Nigel Taulton (Haya Ground Studio), Dane Tilghman (Moody Jones Gallery), Mekha Varghese (Ursinus College), Yolanda Ward (Moody Jones Gallery), and R.L. Washington (Moody Jones Gallery).
Each featured artist's unique signature style is exemplified through their works and is only a small portion of the vast plethora of incredible artists who call Montgomery County home.
The Arts Wall aims to promote the works of local artists, who despite their shared home, come from all different walks of life. Throughout the year, the Arts Wall will rotate its featured works and highlight the works of artists of female artists, LGBTQ artists, and more.
