Recap: How The Rail Park & Spring Arts Utilize Parks, Popups, & Placemaking

On Wednesday September 14th members of The Rail Park, Mural Arts, and Center City District gathered at The Rail Park’s 10th and Hamilton Popup beer garden for a discussion on the importance of incorporating public art into creating new places.

Below check out some of the photo highlights from the event:


Our panel featured Jeff Barg, Associate Director for Planning and External Policy Relations, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society; Nancy Goldenberg, Vice President of Planning & Development Executive Director, Center City District Foundation; Michael Garden Board of Directors, Friends of the Rail Park; and two representatives from Philadelphia’s Mural Arts program


This temporary mural features bright colors and abstract shapes. By removing labels and making it easy to access and photograph, Mural Arts hopes this style of street art attracts new faces to the neighborhood


The stairs on Spring Art’s Arts + Crafts Holdings by Andrew Jeffrey Wright are inspired by the colorful re-imagining of space


Thus Hawk Krall black and white piece is designed to engage all community members by creatively displaying the neighborhood’s history and legacy
