Our Town: A Retrospective of Edith Neff

Among the great figurative painters of the late twentieth century, Edith Neff (1943-1995) was ahead of her time in depicting race, gender, and class in the public spaces of Philadelphia. Community educator, Ebony DeBrest, and Program Director, Nima Koliwad, of the Mount Airy Learning Tree (MALT), discuss Neff’s work with William Valerio, Director of Woodmere Art Museum. MALT was founded in 1980 and celebrates the diversity of Northwest Philadelphia, bringing together neighbors to share a wide variety of ideas, information, and skills in informal learning environments.
