Lenape Perspectives and Art Walk along the Delaware Riverfront
Join Adam DePaul of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania and resident artist Lisa Kelley at Lardner’s Point Park for a history walk along the Delaware Riverfront. This event is part of the programming for the Riverfront North Partnership Greenway artist residency and Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Tacony LAB Community Art Center both located within the Tacony neighborhood, a name is derived from Lenape origins meaning “forest,” “wilderness,” or “uninhabited land.”
While industry has changed the Delaware Riverfront for generations of indigenous peoples and new Americans, the Lenape are still making connections to the riverfront today. Walk this rewilded trail with us, learn about the origins of Lardner’s Point Park and use it to spark your creativity. Participants will be invited to draw/sketch their impressions during and after the walk. Drawing materials will be provided.
We will meet at the entrance to the park off Levick Street. There is a small parking lot on-site , however please share a ride if you can. Please dress according to the expected weather. There is currently construction around the park entrance and it may appear that the road is blocked, however the park is still open. Drive in past the construction signs and park. The park is along the Route 84 bus route.
The address for the park is 5202 Levick Street, Philadelphia PA 19135
All supplies will be provided. Session is from 12pm – 2pm
