This selection of recent works is pulled from a larger body that explores the Ducktown neighborhood in Atlantic City through stories of past and present immigrants of two area homes and the local businesses that continue to meet their everyday needs. A neighborhood holds many different stories from people who live there, and we expect these stories to change as the people change over time. But is there something about a place that remains in those stories even as the culture changes? Read more about it here.

5 Into 1

June 15 – August 30, 2024

Moore is pleased to partner with Philadelphia Sculptors in presenting the twenty-fourth year of 5 into 1, an annual exhibition showcasing the works of emerging sculptors who are recent graduates of five Philadelphia colleges and universities including Moore College of Art & Design (Moore), Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), Tyler School of Art and Architecture (Tyler), The University of the Arts (UArts), and University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). 5 into 1 provides a special post-graduation exhibition opportunity in a professional gallery setting and invites the public to explore recent projects by some of the most talented emerging artists in Philadelphia. Additionally, 5 into 1 celebrates the strengths of young artists as credits to their individual institutions while also revealing the impact made by a show of their combined works. Continuing its commitment to both emerging arts professionals and emerging artists, Philadelphia Sculptors appointed Patrick Cabry, Mandi Hall, Jacintha Kruc, and Jaymi Vilardo as this year’s curators. Each year, the curatorial team is charged with selecting works by students in a variety of majors whose thesis projects promote sculptural thinking, embrace movement, and/or represent the realization of objects that exist in-the-round. This year's exhibition explores a broad range of topics from human interaction to technology's influence on traditional ceramic techniques.

Heather Annette Phillips (Tyler) creates meditative works that help the viewer connect with nature; Kaulini Reddy (Moore) makes art about memories and the sake of making art for the artist’s satisfaction vs the viewer’s; and Tairan Hao (UPenn) shows viewers how technology can redefine ancient ceramic practices and processes. Gage Ramos (UArts) explores human experience through varying mediums, and Ghida Dalloul (UPenn), shows us beauty with undertones of 'façade' or ‘corruption’. Jillian Groff (UArts), River Hennick (PAFA), and John Dillard (Tyler) weave an unexpected common thread through the inclusion of works that are connected visually by the use of rich-hued blues. While the themes are varied, this year's curators agree that together, the craftsmanship of these emerging artists is top-tier—this presentation marks the beginning of a new and exciting journey for these talented recent graduates.

Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, humans have adorned their fingers with ornamental jewelry. From signifying one's marital status to protecting the wearer from forces of evil, rings have served practical, symbolic and decorative purposes throughout history and across cultures. On view June 5 - July 17, 2021 RINGS! offered a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. Featuring work from Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States, this international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. RINGS! was organized by Helen Drutt and researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
