Partner Project: Save The Historic Dox Thrash House
In 2020 The Thrash home is among many vacant storefronts along the commercial corridor of the historically black neighborhood of Historic Sharswood.  Dox Thrash, whose work honored everyday moments in African American life through printmaking became part of well-known institutional collections, like the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the African American Museum. This history is tied to this house in a tangible way and its development creates a new space where the community can continue his legacy. Learn more about Dox Thrash and the project at:
