G_SPACE NEARS COMPLETION ON THE WEST PHILADELPHIA GATEWAY PROJECT
PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE SCULPTURE DEDICATION
Thursday June 10, 2010 4pm – 6pm
at United Bank of Philadelphia
38th St and Powelton Ave
Philadelphia, PA
With the help of the Mural Arts Program, a group of aspiring artists from Sayre High School in West Philadelphia explored the concepts of environment and public art. Eleven young people from Mural Arts Corps Program, collaborated with JEFRE, a nationally known environmental artist based in Florida, to create a gateway sculpture based upon students’ research on local context, environment and community.
The concept is based on the Schuylkill River’s role as a natural gateway of the Schuylkill River and its reflective qualities of the city’s history, culture, and heritage. Two towers are positioned to mirror old and the new architecture of the city in a single image that visitors can walk between and engage. The outside edges of the two towers are living walls that echo the edges of the river as it frames the city.
