Happy Pride, Philadelphia!
In celebration of Philly’s 33rd Pride for the month of June, The Bourse Food Hall partnered with two local artists, Natalie Flor Negron and Davey Levon, to create an elaborate and colorful Pride and Philly-centric themed chalk mural on our 5th St sidewalk in front of the XOXO structure.
Meet the artists:
Natalie Flor Negron is a Philadelphia-based mixed media artist who utilizes a variety of print techniques, vinyl cutout, and collage aspects in her work.
Davey Levon is a queer nonbinary artist, influenced by nature, literature, children’s book illustration, stop-motion animation, naïve art, spiritual and psychedelic art, and experimental music.
Both artists were on-site live painting their creations on Wednesday, June 16th, and it was a 6 hour project. Check out the photos below captured by the talented creative digital producer Emil Moldoveanu and see the progression of the chalk mural and the final masterpiece. Happy Pride, Philadelphia!
