Saturday, May 4, 2019 – 2pm
WALK LEADER: Caitlin Martin, Association for Public Art
MEETING PLACE: By the Dilworth Park cafe.
Free. All are welcome. Rain or shine.
Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway has become an outdoor museum since its construction in the early 20th century. From Alexander Calder’s “William Penn” atop City Hall to Mark di Suvero’s “Iroquois” near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this tour highlights the convoluted stories behind the Parkway’s outstanding collection of public art.
We’ll meet outside of the Dilworth Park Cafe by City Hall, 1 S 15th St (West Side of City Hall). I’ll be wearing a yellow shirt with the Association for Public Art logo on it. Walk will end at the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps.
