About The Exhibit:

Crazy Philadelphia Eddie is the newest exhibit in the Community Gallery at Independence Seaport Museum, curated by Erich Weiss and Villain Arts.

From Brooklyn's Coney Island to the counterculture of 1960s South Street in Philadelphia, Eddie Funk fought to make a name for himself, protect the freedoms of tattoo artists, and share his legacy with the world. Discover Eddie's influence in this limited engagement exhibit, featuring rare flash, personal mementos, and other authentic memorabilia seldom put on public display.
