100 Things to do in Philly + Events + Philadelphia Deals & more!
On Saturday, July 1, Mural Arts Philadelphia gives the first glimpse of Monument Lab, featuring a sneak preview of Philadelphia artist Kara Crombie’s monument, Sample Philly: an interactive sculpture with a sound bank of musical loops drawn from the city's rich musical history. Enjoy live music and refreshments, and chat one-on-one with the artist and curators in Franklin Square. Nine weeks, 10 sites, 21 artists, and one central question: What is your vision for a monument that represents Philadelphia? Monument Lab is a public art and history project produced by Mural Arts Philadelphia and curators Paul Farber and Ken Lum that invites people to join a citywide conversation about history, memory, and our collective future. Visit monumentlab.muralarts.org for more information about this expansive, interactive project, coming to Philadelphia’s Center City squares and neighborhood parks in fall 2017. Admission is free.
