The Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA), Empowered CDC, and Bartram’s Garden are collaborating on a proposal that aims to reimagine a highly visible empty parcel at the intersection of 56th Street, Lindbergh Boulevard, and Elmwood Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia.
The project will involve the design and installation of several site-specific works of art to help create a welcoming community hub for the surrounding neighborhood by July 2024. This is the first step of a multi-stage, transformational plan to transform the intersection over an 8-year period.
The overall budget for this project is $55,000, with $10,000 allocated to artist fees and up to $45,000 for production. The artist fees will be aligned with the services agreed and provided.
