Book a Tour of “An Immigrant Alphabet” Exhibit

Posted on June 3, 2019

An Immigrant Alphabet is a public art installation produced by Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture, featuring the work of artist Wendy Ewald in collaboration with eighteen Northeast High School students exploring their immigrant experiences. The exhibit  is on display until mid-June at the Cherry Street Pier, 121 N Columbus Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19106.

Guided tours, presentations, and engagements are available for students, organizations, and businesses. Click here to set up a tour today!

#iAlphabet was previously displayed at the Municipal Services Building in Center City Philadelphia from September 2017 through July 2018 with a series of free participatory events held at Thomas Paine Plaza and venues across the city.

The newly released book, “America, Border, Culture, Dreamer: The Young Immigrant Experience from A to Z,” features the banner images and student narratives, and is available here on Amazon.

To participate in the next phase of the project, when the banners are dispersed to sites across the city, contact Al-Bustan at
