Art in the City: Ethan Nguyen's Mural Art Installation - Fri 5/7

I had the pleasure of meeting the charming Ethan Nguyen of Titans & Co. during the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference at New York Fashion Week in February. Though we share a love of style, this Philly native has quite the artistic eye as well. During NYFW he was awarded a grant from the Arts & the City Grants Program to produce an art installation at UPenn, featuring the many beautiful murals from around Philadelphia. Take a look:

How beautiful!

Read more about his personal connection to the murals on Titans & Co.

If you're in the area, make sure you head to the University of Pennsylvania this Friday, May 7th to check out Ethan's installation. If you're not - you can bid for a mini rendition of the installation (twenty encased images), to be auctioned off with proceeds going to Team Boravuth.

Congrats Ethan!
