Shaun Brady for Philadelphia’s Daily News encourages readers to get out their smartphones and discover Philadelphia’s public art through Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO, the Association for Public Art’s interpretive outdoor sculpture audio program.
“Museum Without Walls offers a variety of voices discussing the artistic, historic and cultural impact of the city’s public art, one of the most extensive and impressive collections of any city in the country,” Brady writes, adding that notable participating voices include “Mayor Nutter; ‘Clothespin’ artist Claes Oldenburg; Philadelphia Museum of Art director and CEO Timothy Rub; and David Kim, violinist and concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra.”
Originally launched in 2010 for artworks along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Kelly Drive, Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO expanded in 2013 with the addition of 30 new audio programs for sculptures in Center City and Fairmount Park.
