JJ Makes Philly Move!

First Person Salon Presenter JJ Tiziou is making big news in Philly today! His photography of Philly dancers will be the basis for an almost 50,000 square foot mural on the parking decks facing I-95 at the Philadelphia International Airport. How Philly Moves builds off of JJ’s piece in the 2008 Philly Fringe Festival, in which dancers of all ages, experience levels and styles came in for a dance/photo session with JJ. They brought the music and the moves; JJ documented it all in typical JJ style.

On March 5-7, you can dance and possibly become a part of the mural. Anyone can join in! Sign up to participate by February 19th on the How Philly Moves website.

JJ isn’t alone in this massive undertaking. He’s partnered with The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Philadelphia International Airport, and the Philadelphia Park Authority.
