Sept. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- The Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum is celebrating its 11th anniversary by organizing an extrasensory experience called Synesthesia. The party will take place on October 16 in the Museum’s famous garden courtyard and will have performers on two stages. The event will feature live music, fire spinners, live painters, ultraviolet dancers, live video projections and other specialty performances.

Gabe Tiberino will create a live performance painting on stage during a headlining set by Lo Life, the moniker for Clay Parnell’s live pa act. Parnell, a Philadelphia-based musician, is best known as the bassist for Biodiesel and Brother’s Past. System D-128 will perform a special Kill Yourself audio and video set and Domino will participate by creating collaborative visual projections.

Performers and audience members will collaborate in an interactive ultraviolet dance area that will be surrounded by the Tiberino Museum’s 3D murals, treehouse, sculptures and eclectic landscaping.

Synesthesia is open to those that are over 21 and will start at 8 p.m. and end at midnight.

The Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum is located at 3819 Hamilton Street, Philadelphia, PA. http://www.tiberinomuseum.org

About Ellen Powell Tiberino
A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Ellen Powell was born in 1937 and grew up in the Mantua neighborhood of Philadelphia. She won a scholarship to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she studied with Hobson Pittman and Julius Bloch. She became the first black woman to win the Cresson Traveling Scholarship in 1959, which allowed her to travel and study in Europe. Throughout her adult life she lived in Philadelphia, where her home was frequently a gathering place for the city's artists. Her determination to depict life in her community is evident throughout her work, such as the relief sculpture about the 1985 MOVE bombing in West Philadelphia that she completed with her husband, the artist Joe Tiberino. The project was exhibited at Temple University's law school in 1986. After a long struggle with cancer, Ellen Powell Tiberino died in 1992.
