Stained glass windows from Germantown High School are now hanging on display at Drexel University.
Fourteen works are on display as part of the “Hand-Eye Collaboration” exhibition at Drexel’s James E. Marks Intercultural Center at 33rd and Chestnut Streets.
Germantown students have been making these since 2006, in “The Stained Glass Project: Windows That Open Doors.”
A press release from the project says it is “comprised of artist volunteers and teenagers who are Christian, Muslim, African American, African, Caucasian, old and young, from all backgrounds who meet at FUMCOG every week to make art and develop warm friendships.
The friendships can’t hang in a museum. But the art can.
The windows will be in display at Drexel through June 4 – with free admission. Then they’ll be donated to The Community Partnership School of north Philadelphia.
