Rabid Hands + The Resource Exchange

Rabid Hands Art Collective recently visited our shop, looking for materials [lumber, felt, paper rolls, foam tubes, and more] for their project in the 2013 Hidden City Festival. Hidden City invites artists to animate Philadelphia's most unusual and remarkable spaces, often opening them to the public for the first time. The festival offers great opportunities to explore the city from May 23-June 30. Rabid Hands will inhabit Hawthorne Hall in West Philly; here's more on their project, from the festival website: Rabid Hands Art Collective, featuring members Andrew Schrock, Ben Wolf, Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels, and Vanessa Cronan along with other collaborators, will establish the “Society of Pythagoras” within the ruins of an old clubhouse (complete with its church, theater and bar) using materials collected on the site and around the city. The artists will explore the tangled history of the fraternal lodges that once made the site their home, drawing from past and present secret spiritual and fraternal customs to create a mysterious, multi-storied club built on ritual and exploration.
