The Slingluff Gallery is a small art gallery located in the corner of Phildelphia where Fishtown, Northern Liberties, and Old Kennsington meet. The Gallery started in 2006 by Jonathan and Leigh Slingluff, who have been in their current location since 2008. Slingluff wants to bring a different style of art to the City of Philadelphia. For example, they are currently graffiri art, not just to break the mindset that graffiti is ugly, but because these street artists are contemporary art. Their influence on the art scene is bigger than ever and we want others to see that. Not only can you purchase art pieces at the gallery, but online through their web site.

We want people to add their experiences regarding Philadelphia, even if they are from out of town, which can be done on our Facebook fan page as well. www.facebook.com/MyPhillyAlive At the end of the day, we want to be different from the many Philadelphia sites. We want our site to be easy to navigate, while at the same time, we want you to not only find the hot spots, the best things to do in Philadelphia; but those hidden gems within the city. Thanks...
