The Berks History Center and the Reading Downtown Improvement District Authority (RDIDA) have launched Berks History on Penn, a collaborative, community art installation that explores the history of downtown Reading through photographs from the Berks History Center’s collection. The exhibit, on display through the end of 2019, is located in the windows of the Callowhill building on the corner of 5th and Penn Streets. The project is funded by the Penn Street Arts Grant Program of Berks County Community Foundation.
“Partnering with the RDIDA has been an organic and successful collaboration,” says Executive Director Sime Bertolet. “The Berks History on Penn project is an opportunity to garner interest and increase visitation to the Downtown Improvement District while showcasing the rich history of downtown Reading.”
