PAIGE SMITH JOINS HAHA MAG X PARADIGM GALLERY FOR COMMUNITY ARTS PROJECT
We’re super excited that Graphic Designer/Street Artist, Paige Smith agreed to bring her Urban Geodes project to Philly as part of the HAHA Magazine x Paradigm Gallery Community Arts Project.
As part of her visit Paige (aka acommonname) is not only leaving behind some amazing street art , but she’s giving demonstrations at Paradigm Gallery and at a neighboring design school.
This past weekend we tramped all over Philly with Paige & Streets Dept, installing her geodes in some pretty spectacular spots - only we can’t tell you which ones.
Yup - we’ve turned this into a Geode Treasure Hunt. The first 2 people who tweet or Instagram 4 of Paige’s Urban Geodes locations in Philly using the hashtags #PhillyGeodes and #hahaxpara will win a one-of-a-kind sculpture from Paige. And this photo-set is chock full of location hints.
For more information about this project, check out hahaxparadigm.org.
Curious to see how you can bring Urban Geodes to your community?

Thomas Eakins - The Gross Clinic (1875)
“Admired for its uncompromising realism, The Gross Clinic has an important place documenting the history of medicine—both because it honors the emergence of surgery as a healing profession (previously, surgery was associated primarily with amputation), and because it shows us what the surgical theater looked like in the nineteenth century. The painting is based on a surgery witnessed by Eakins, in which Gross treated a young man for osteomyelitis of the femur. Gross is pictured here performing a conservative operation as opposed to an amputation (which is how the patient would normally have been treated in previous decades).”

Woods’ solution to post-war cities is architecture, “by creating entirely new types of space in the city, without predetermined use, but whose strong forms demanded the invention of new programs corresponding to the new, post-war conditions.”
