Can you hear colors?
Can you smell sounds?
Can you see music?
If so, you might have synesthesia!
Synesthesia is a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color. It is more common than you think and some very extremely famous artists and musicians had Synesthesia!
We think Synesthetics are so cool that we decided to create an event that is guaranteed to create an extrasensory experience for everyone involved! Join us!
Join us for a night of extrasensory perception and celebrate the Tiberino Museum's 11th anniversary!

Garden Courtyard at the Tiberino Museum
3819 Hamilton Street
Established in October 16, 1999 The ELLEN:
The Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum celebrates the life and career of this renowned Philadelphia Artist. The complex includes a common courtyard decorated with sculptures and permanent murals. The Tiberino Museum encourages artistic awareness and a love of community and spirit.
Lo Life is the moniker for Clay Parnellís solo, live pa project. Known best as the bassist for bands like BioDiesel, Brothers Past, CIA, and a regular guest with The Join (a project featuring members of the New Deal), Lo Life is Parnellís forum for his EDM production and composition. Remixing and rearranging his original material on the fly, no two Lo Life performances are the same and always make for an earth shaking dance party featuring innovative and genre bending electronic music.
Brian Korlofsky was born in New York City to parents of Puerto Rican and Russian descent. He was later raised in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands and Florida.
He first got into audio and video when VCRs were first introduced. His father obtained one and his family began recording television programs on a regular basis, a habit he later continued. He archived material and used it for audio and video mixes and as source material for sample-based productions, installations, and visual backdrops for touring artists.
System D-128 has done visuals for artists such as RJD2, Atmosphere, Immortal Technique, Mr. Lif, Kool Keith, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man and Redman, Justice, M.I.A., Diplo, Girl Talk, VHS or BETA, Daft Punk and many more.
Domino is a title that encompasses the creative projects of artist Doug O'Neil. Domino was a name initially used to conceal Doug's true identity/alter ego during his foray into street art and graffiti culture. Since then, Doug has publicly removed the mask and employed the pseudonym as his VJ title and stage name. After several particularly transformative synchro-mystic experiences in 2007, Domino's intention has been to use his art as a portal to outer realms of consciousness. His interactive VJ sets are initiated in an attempt to dissolve the boundaries between the audience and performer, creating a participatory experience for everyone involved that highlights individual potential. Domino has created his visualizations at Alex Grey's Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in NYC, the Foolish People theater company in London, and the Energy Art Movement in Chicago.
Gabriele Tiberino was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The youngest son of Joseph Tiberino, Gabriele is one of many successful artists in the Tiberino Family. He lives and creates art in the Tiberino Museum, along with several other family members. Gabriele was exposed to a variety of art forms at a very young age and comic books have proved to be a lasting influence on Tiberino's latest work. After graduating from the High School of Creative Arts with a fine arts major, he continued on and graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2005. Throughout his schooling, Gabriele assisted many of Philadelphia's mural artists. He has gone on to become an assistant on over 20 murals and has been the head muralist on seven murals throughout Philadelphia. Several of his murals can be found in Indianapolis and Long Island as well.
Jen Web is a dedicated artist that has been busy making her mark in the exciting world of hoop dance.

Whether she's performing on stage, making hand-made hoops, or teaching her hoop dance class, Jen Web doesn't seem to have trouble finding new avenues to explore her passion.

Bio coming soon...

Viva has been following the rhythms of her soul since childhood, passionately striving for expression, interaction and exploration. Whether shimmying through the swimming pool or picking off runners on the cross country course, Vival has always danced her dance. With a desire to inspire and energy to share Rachel thrives off of igniting the flame in others. Her radiant nature is sure to turn up the heat and keep you smiling!
Noelle flew into the hoop in 2007 while chasing the music of the summer. She started taking hoop dance classes in Philadelphia and spending countless hours watching youtube tutorials. The happiness that hooping brought her was tremendous. Always a free-dancing-spirit, the hoop was a perfect fit.
Now her love for teaching is coming together with her hooping. She brings the experience and joy of hooping to friends, family, and strangers whether it be at parties, the park, or where ever there's room for dancing.
Noelle hopes to keep teaching individuals how to be one with the hoop and embrace all that it has to offer and to eventually perform in front of audiences to awe and inspire!
In her spare time Noelle enjoys creating art, diving deeper into her yoga practice, and dabbling in the aerial arts.
