125 Years: Drexel & The City Exhibition
Start Date: 1/12/2017Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 3/19/2017End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
This exhibition will showcase themes of exploration, invention and conversation using artifacts, images and stories that celebrate the history of Drexel’s urban setting. Anthony J. Drexel built his institute of art, science and industry at the heart of a vibrant district where rail yards, factories and warehouses operated in close proximity to the Powelton and Mantua neighborhoods. Then, Philadelphia was the “workshop of the world” and the Drexel Institute would be “central to the best of the working population of a great industrial city.” How have we changed? The exhibition will transform the Pearlstein Gallery into the “neighborhood,” a place where visitors will be able to engage and discuss Drexel’s changing relationship with its neighbors. Faculty, staff, and students (undergraduate and graduate) from Westphal as well as the college of Arts and Science, and the Dornsife Center, are curating the exhibition, and will be involved in key programming with residents of Powelton and Mantua.
