Special thanks to Phaedra Trethan for her excellence in writing and for her commitment to Camden.
Also, special thanks to Sandra Turner-Barnes who spoke at the 11 Cooper opening. Sandra is an accomplished poet, author, and leader in the arts in Camden, and she represented and spoke so eloquently about all of the artists featured in the art curation installation at 11 Cooper as well as the arts in Camden overall. She also read aloud her powerful poem, My City, My Camden. The link above also features Phaedra’s wonderful video of Sandra reading her uplifting poem in its entirety. This same poem is featured in the art William created for 11 Cooper (shown in the section above).
Thanks again to the talented Avi Steinhardt for the photographs above.
