From September 9 – October 21, 2012 fifteen artists will transform the ground floor (and the roof) of Globe Dye Works into “Catagenesis”, an exhibition of site specific installations and multi-media artworks sponsored by Philadelphia Sculptors. Artists from Canada, Israel and the U. S., including Globe resident artist Joe Leroux, will repurpose discarded Globe equipment and industrial detritus as they unveil their responses to the building and its complex history as a dye manufacturing facility. A video featuring the history of Globe and its current revival will be on view. A public opening reception featuring local vendors is scheduled for Sunday, September 9 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. All are welcome.
