Philly is a hotbed for the arts. The scene for Philly music, fashion, and the arts is rich but the hardest part is finding the up-and-coming talents. That is until now. MergeArts will be hosting their wildly popular variety showcase The Merge.
On March 19th, The Merge will take place at the newly revamped Coda at 1712 Walnut St. and will bring together some of Philly’s best and brightest upcoming talent under one roof. This time around The Merge will feature 4 bands, 6 fashion runways, 14 visual artists and 750 of the region’s creative class. It’s safe to say there’s a little something for everyone.
MergeArts which provides a platform for local and regional artists and musicians to showcase their work has been steadily building The Merge over the last 4 years. The director of Merge Arts, Frederick Calalang has made it his business to make it easier for the general public to enjoy Philadelphia’s collective talents.
Past showcases have attracted Philly-based musical talents such as Schoolly D, Mark Gaines, and Overcoming gravity as well as fashion up-and comers Tony Crush and LeGrand Leseur. As for painters, sculptors, and various other artists, The Merge has successfully drew hundreds of budding artistic talent.
This month’s The Merge will promise to be bigger and better than ever. For tickets and more information visit MergeArts.org.
