A part of the Painted Bride Art Center’s “Power to the Prompt” conversations, Call Home is an interactive multimedia exhibition brought forth by street photographer Terrell Halsey and writer/multi-disciplinary artist Nina Elizabeth “Lyrispect” Ball. Photography, poetic prose, penmanship, projection, and sound animate the stories of a diverse sample set of Philadelphians embedded in the landscape of an ever-changing city. Within the context of a global pandemic, heavy urban development, and social change, Call Home explores the need to connect, to belong, to be understood…and the hopes these individuals have for both the celebrated and forgotten communities they call home.
