Why I Create

by Philip M. Warden

I create to give people a new world to explore.
To meet new friends that will become lifelong companions.
For when the adventure ends and the friends wave goodbye, a tear can be shed for having been a part of something greater than themselves.
‘Til we meet again, my dear friends.

Philip is one of several In Print members to have his work featured at the Allegory Project, an art space and exhibition co-sponsored by the Art Matters Artist Coop and the Rockford Area Arts Council. The Allegory Project plans to have a theme that is explored in various art forms: painting and sculpture, photography, repurposed objects, and the spoken and written word.

Philip’s piece and the others have been framed at the gallery and are available for viewing from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The show space is on the northwest corner of Madison and Prairie Streets in Rockford.
