PW’s guide to Philly’s fall art events.
Speaking of books, watch for a launch party this fall for Vox Populi ’s 21st birthday book. The as-yet untitled book is a small but weighty tome—about 8 ½-inches by 11-inches and 100 pages, says Vox executive director Andrew Suggs. The book uses words and pictures to chronicle the twenty-first year of the artist-run space and gives a timeline of the group’s history and its many members. The book is a must for armchair historians of the local art scene. ■
