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.
