Neglected and untitled Percent for Art sculpture at the base of the ramp from 20th Street.
The colorful piece by artist David Stoltz was mounted on stone blocks from the retaining walls of the Callowhill Cut and rigged up with PVC pipes to function as a fountain. The transverse white PVC pipe seen at the top of the stones is perforated, allowing water to flow with a waterfall effect over the staggered stones. This was installed in 1999 after the police station move and the Whole Foods construction. It is covered with grime now, but the inset shows how it appeared when created by Stoltz in the 1980s. The fountain is not operating.
Strange place for "public" art.
Inside the lobby of the Community College of Philadelphia Center for Business and Industry at the northeast corner of Callowhill Street and Franklin Town Boulevard. It is visible from the outside, but just barely.
Athena Tacha, artist for Connections, visiting the Park in 2013.
Connections is her title for the two-acre stone and landscape creation that is the Park.
