KYW 1060 AM | Positively Philadelphia: Local High School Student Helps Curate Exhibit at PAFA

KYW Newsradio spoke with Youth Council member Sophia Becker about her experience of being part of the curatorial team behind At One Stroke: Prints by Helen Frankenthaler:

"This year, PAFA was gifted with 17 Helen Frankenthaler prints from their New York foundation and we were tasked with curating that exhibition and finding a way to make it really engaging and interesting for people. We wrote the wall text ourselves and came up with the ideas and the layout for the entire show."
