Execute Art Not People

by Joshua Pelta-Heller
Artist Aja Beech's project considers death penalty policy reform in Pennsylvania with an interactive art program tonight.

Philadelphia-based artist and writer Aja Beech is the driving force behind tonight's program of interactive art events hosted by the Ethical Society of Philadelphia, 1906 Rittenhouse Square.  The campaign explores the impact of the death penalty in Pennsylvania, and leverages the endorsements of a number of more established local artists including Gianni Lee, King Britt, and Tatyana Fazlalizadeh.

The hosts of this free event invite you to drop by this evening.  The program includes an art segment with the Mural Arts Program at 6 PM, a screening of the film Concrete, Steel and Paint at 7:00, and a panel discussion at 9:00 on the investment in restorative justice, arts and eduction over prohibitive prison programs.

Look for our interview with Aja, coming soon.  For more information on EANP, visit the tublr website and blog for Execute Art Not People.  For more on tonight's program, check out yesterday's article on Philly.com.
