Philadelphia City Paper
By Brian James Kirk
The Fairmount Park Art Association will launch its Museum Without Walls audio tour, a storytelling series for prominent public art. Artists and experts explain 51 sculptures in informative sound bites that can be downloaded to portable music players or listened to by dialing in from a cell phone.
The clips are engaging, like artist Mark di Suvero explaining the impromptu welding process he used for Iroquois (pictured), the kinetic red sculpture near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, or expert analysis of Henry Moore’s Three-Way Piece Number One: Points, the bulbous yet delicate sculpture on the Parkway. Opens Thu., June 10, free, Fairmount Park Art Association, 215-546-7550, museumwithoutwallsaudio.org.
