New art by Charlene Cooper "B.O.M.B." Blood Of My Brothers

I am a local Philadelphia artist and this is my new release, I am using this piece to raise funds and awareness of the many African-Americans @ war and portions of proceeds from the sale of this print will help to support the efforts of the silly string campaign. If you are unaware please read more about this on The organizers are parents of soldiers fighting in the Middle East, and the silly string helps the troops in locating booby traps without setting them off, because I am so passionate about this idea I am willing to donate because any effort to bring the US Troops home safely to their loved ones instead of a folded flag is all worth it to me, and that goes for troops of all races. I ask that you help me in my efforts, by purchasing, distributing or simply exposing this artwork to all. Please feel free to contact me at any time, and visit for more artworks.
Peace & Blessings,

About The Park…

Winner of Theme Magazine’s best-new-bar-in-the-west-and-wales award, The Park is a small, but perfectly formed, late-licensed bar with a private lounge available for hire upstairs

The interior is timeless, stylish, and very comfortable, and the quality of the extensive (and often exotic) drinks menu is matched by the food, supplied by equally award-winning local restaurants, Budokan and The Olive Shed
