Tom Savage is the craftsman extraordinare who revived the Street Road cottage when it was a falling down shack held together by a bit of old tar paper. He and his team are the expert builders behind the unTOLLed Stories booth, and though we knew it'd turn out wonderfully, it's much more than than we ever imagined, a remarkable work of craftsmanship. Thank you thank you Tom and thanks to your team - Neal Hess and Matt Buskell. We are so excited to see this thing in action all summer - Felise and Emily
unTOLLed stories, by Felise Luchansky and Emily Artinian is a participatory artwork that's part of Street Road's Arterial Motives exhibition. Open on Fridays from 3-4pm, and Saturdays from 1-2pm for the duration of the exhibition, unTOLLed stories is a toll booth on the Street Road site. Drivers are paid a toll in exchange for participating in a survey about local traffic – especially the habit of local drivers to use the Street Road property as a short cut.

A word about 'here':
We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Lenape, original people of the mid-Atlantic area, forced west by British and US governments. Most Delaware Indian tribe descendents are now located in Oklaholma, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Lenni Lenapes in Pennsylvania are not officially recognized as tribes by the United States, though an estimated 5000 Lenape Nation descendents live in the Delaware River area. We pay respects to the Lenape people both past and present. Please consider the many legacies of violence, displacement and settlement that form part of our collective histories. While increased public recognition of these legacies and processes of redress such as Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission are positive steps, concrete focus on return of land and land rights remains a distant horizon.
