OFFERING & EXHIBITION

When families in Philadelphia couldn’t go out to play, children helped bring joy to neighbors by displaying rainbows in windows from inside their homes. Created in a partnership between Please Touch Museum, Temple Contemporary at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and Philadelphia Contemporary Double Rainbows is an in-person and online exhibition of these rainbows.

After the exhibition the drawings will be given to families across the city, who have lost a loved one to the coronavirus, as a show of caring and compassion. Rainbows will also be distributed to partnering hospitals to brighten up COVID wards. Double Rainbows will be on view from May 6 – June 27, 2021 at the Please Touch Museum. Reserve tickets and review safety guidelines at pleasetouchmuseum.org.

Funding for Double Rainbows is provided by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
