Our conservation efforts involved a little bit of everything this year: laser treatments, power washing, new wood slats, fresh paint, the classic bronze waxing – even lipstick and gum removal. Each spring, the Association provides conservation treatment for 30+ artworks in Philadelphia and take on special projects as needed.


Nancy Baker Cahill’s Liberty Bell Augmented Reality Project

On view for one year beginning July 4, 2020

Presented simultaneously in 6 U.S. cities, including Philadelphia, Liberty Bell is an augmented reality drawing in 360 degrees that offers viewers the opportunity to consider their own experiences of liberty, freedom, and injustice and inequality. The artwork relies on geolocation and requires downloading a free app.

In collaboration with Vision 2020’s Women 100: A National Celebration of American Women, the Association for Public Art (aPA) is highlighting a number of important public artworks in Philadelphia created by women artists.
