This year’s Tiny Room for Elephants exhibition at Cherry Street Pier cultivated the best works from artists and musicians around Philadelphia. This year’s premiere featured over 35+ projects total, including custom murals, handmade sculptures, and more, along with standout performances from Joshua Lang, Suzanne Sheer, Cheeky, and Eric Boss.
The Tiny Room for Elephants was curated by founders YaYa Horne and Damian Ward, who initially started TRFE as a creative experiment to provide local artists space to create and document. Since then, Tiny Room has evolved into a full-blown festival with artists creating custom, once-in-a-lifetime pieces over 30 days.
TRFE’s premiere kicked off at Cherry Street Pier from 6-10 PM last Thursday. It brought art enthusiasts and fans from all over the city to witness the incredible gallery showcase despite record-breaking heat.
Some of my personal favorites from this year’s exhibition include pieces from the following artists:
In addition to the incredible artwork, Thursday’s premiere featured amazing performances from local artists Joshua Lang, Suzanne Sheer, Cheeky, and Eric Boss. Ranging in genres from classic hip-hop to soft, indie pop, attendees were able to experience the best that each musician had to offer.
TRFE provided an incredible experience for attendees by curating the most unique, inspiring art projects and live showcases under one roof. This is a must-see for anyone passionate about music, and art, or is looking to expand their creative tastes and support their local creators. We are looking forward to 2023!
