Temple Contemporary presents Funeral for a Home, an unprecedented yearlong project celebrating the long life of a vacant city rowhouse

Equal parts public history and public art, Funeral for a Home is the collaborative effort of artists Jacob Hellman, Billy Dufala and Steven Dufala, residents of West Philadelphia’s Mantua neighborhood, historians and community leaders, culminating with a memorial service and funeral procession set to coincide with the home’s demolition on May 31
