Come on out for a party on the block as we dedicate a new mural at the Drake!
The historic Drake building in Center City is now home to a mural from artist Felix St. Fort, inspired by the space’s long history of creative vitality and cross-disciplinary work. «The Stage» turns an exterior wall into an abstract set for a play, complete with 42 lines of text from plays written by playwrights with connections to the Drake. This project honors the past while looking toward the bright future of the New Play movement, enlivening Hicks Street with warm tones and color shifts that make all of Philadelphia an audience.
P.S. There will be Rita's Italian Ice
, FREE beer, Insomnia Cookies
(while supplies last!), Pretzels, and much more.
