Vision Thru Art - Join our Friends Circle

After you take a look at the video above, please consider helping us by joining our Friends Circle to help support this amazing program.  Vision Thru Art is a weekly sculpture class for blind and visually-impaired artists that has called Allens Lane Art Center home for over 35 years.  This 33 week series of classes hosts up to 40 artists (mostly seniors) and is completely free.

We hope that you will consider joining our Friends Circle of individual supporters with a contribution of $25, $50, $100, or more. Friends Circle members will be acknowledged on the Center’s website, and on printed materials at this winter’s Holiday Craft Show. Help us to ensure that Vision Thru Art keeps going for another 30 years and more. – THANK YOU!

It is 1790, and Mary Girard, wife of prolific Philadelphia philanthropist Stephen Girard, has awoke to find herself committed to the mental asylum of The Pennsylvania Hospital. How did she get here? How long must she stay? Why has her husband not come to have her released? Is it all a mistake, or is she truly insane? Join us on the inside where we find out more about her and those closest to her, as the tale unfolds of Mary...Polly Mary...Crazy Mary...Girard.

The first four performances of this show will be featured as a part of the 2019 Philadelphia Fringe Festival
