Marilyn MacGregor, Philly artist and designer, has created a special limited edition print in honor of Pope Francis’s visit to Philadelphia, with sales to benefit the hungry and homeless. Her series Philadelphia: Famous Sites & Famous Places, a fresh new take on well-known landmarks and neighborhoods in Philadelphia, combines her original, on-site sketches with appealing colors and crisp design. The series is readily available as cards and prints in stores around the city as well as from her Friday merchant cart at Reading Terminal Market.
This signed limited print, in an edition of 50, honors Pope Francis’s work on behalf of the poor and needy and the environment, and will benefit Philadelphia’s hungry and homeless through the Francis Fund. This offer is made independently and was not commissioned by any agency.
“I don’t believe one needs to be a Catholic or a churchgoer to understand that this Pope is using his voice and his position in an important way in a time of great need. This is my artist’s way of supporting him and his work with my work.”
The print, in Marilyn’s loose contemporary style, shows Philadelphia’s Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul and has a commemorative message for the Pope’s historic visit. See details at http://www.macgregor-art.com/benefit-prints-for-good-causes.html
