UPPN Arts and Culture Experience: Live an Learn

“It is crucial for aspiring business leaders to become well-rounded individuals and gain an appreciation for culture early on in life, not only for their own enrichment, but also because successful business relationships are often built on shared interests.” --Jerry L. Cohen (April 2003 – Member, Board of Overseers of New York University’s Stern School of Business)

The UrbanPhilly.com Professional Network (UPPN), in collaboration with Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation’s Quest for Freedom project and Philly 360, cordially invites you to the second edition of “The UPPN Arts and Culture Experience.” This exclusive after work event series is designed to promote cultural and economic growth in Philadelphia by strengthening the connection between professionals and the arts and culture community. 

Join us at this special event where we partner with Hidden City Philadelphia, a unique arts festival that brings Philadelphia’s best unknown historical and architectural landmarks back to life through original works of art. During The UPPN Arts and Culture Experience you will have an opportunity to meet visual and performing artist Sanford Biggers at Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church as he discusses Constellation, his art installation project for the Hidden City Philadelphia program. Constellation demystifies the secret symbols of the Underground Railroad in Philadelphia and depicts safe houses as stars on a map, creating a constellation in which Mother Bethel is the North Star. Live & Learn scholar Dr. Veronica Watson will moderate the discussion in context to George and Willene Hendrick’s Fleeing for Freedom: Stories of the Underground Railroad as told by Levi Coffin and William Still (2004).


After the discussion mix, mingle, network and enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres with the artist and other professionals at Reef Restaurant and Lounge.

Space is limited and a RSVP is required for this exclusive gathering. Business/Business Casual attire is required.
