Bridesburg: The Island in Frankford Creek
Artist: Branden Eastwood
April 6 - May 13
Bridesburg is a slice of the rust belt compressed into a neighborhood in Philadelphia's Northeast. Since the advent of the city, it's been the dumping ground for the city's most toxic industries. Initially it was tanneries, then it was the gun powder storage and finally chemical production. In the 70's there was a cancer cluster that killed dozens. Today, the neighborhood is one of the whitest and most conservative in the city. Confederate flags hang outside homes and on cars. Many of the neighborhood's residents have lived there their entire lives.
