“Funeral for a Home” is one of the more unique oral history projects in the mid-Atlantic region.
The project teams artists with oral historians to document the lives of all the families that lived in a single home over the course of its existence, and then commemorate the home with a funeral before it’s demolished.
The project was featured at OHMAR’s 2014 annual meeting in Philadelphia, and recently was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”:
Funeral for a Home is arranged by Temple Contemporary at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. To learn more about the project, visit: http://funeralforahome.org.
