Philadelphia Project Receives Unanimous Art Commission Approval
The redesign of Philadelphia City Hall’s Dilworth Plaza, including an ambitious new sculpture from Janet Echelman, has been given the full support of the Philadelphia Art Commission. Continuing her interest in making visible the existing environmental forces unseen by the human eye, Echelman’s artwork will use a data feed of subway movement to trace above ground the pathways of the three rail lines that run beneath Dilworth Plaza. The movement will occur in real time, drawing the pathways in 5-ft-tall curtains of atomized water illuminated by layers of colored light. Visit our website for more information.
