Take an immersive stroll along Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway to experience and learn about the public sculpture installations dotting this grand boulevard including the works of three generations of Calders. The walk will begin at the corner of 16th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Cret Park, named after Paul Cret, one of the most influential individuals in Philadelphia architecture in the early part of the 20th Century. The experience includes a conversation with Zach Tatti, one of the country’s leading art conservators, on the restoration of sculptor Henry Moore’s 1964 Three-Way Piece Number One: Points. Conclude the tour with a complimentary cold-one at one of Philadelphia’s leading craft brewers, Victory Brewing Co. And then at the end of the evening, feel free to jog up the nearby steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and take a selfie with the most iconic public sculpture of all, the Rocky statue.
The tour will be led by Laura Griffith, the deputy director of the Association for Public Art.
