Dearaindrop, the Virginia-based collective, will have their first solo exhibition in Philadelphia at the Institute. We don't know what will be on display at PIFAS but we've encountered Dearaindrop via Brent Burket's post on Coney Island Dreamland Artist's Club. Libby will be away but you may see Roberta at this event/happening/game day special.
