Dear Members, Neighbors and Friends !
Please join the community in the opening of Site/Sound: Revealing the Rail Park.

The Friends of the Rail Park in collaboration with Mural Arts Philadelphia

American Composers Forum is excited to invite you to the opening of Site/Sound: Revealing the Rail Park on October 5, 2019 at 6 pm.

Site/Sound: Revealing the Rail Park is a unique new festival that combines audio-visual art installations and diverse music performances, all shaped by their surroundings. Above and below the city streets, the installations celebrate and imagine the past, present, and future of Philadelphia’s Rail Park. Through community workshops, panels, tours, and performances, we’ll bring to life a new shared urban space rising from the tracks and thoroughfares that were once the terminus of the mighty Reading Railroad. 

Saturday, Oct. 5, through Saturday, Oct. 19, the festival will feature three large-scale art installations (2 in Callowhill, 1 in Logan Square) using sound and light, as well as additional free community programming, like a taiko drumming performance, poetry reading, mural tour and discussion on public art and public spaces.

The kick-off celebration of the festival will occur on October 5, 2019 at 6pm at Baldwin Park, located at 429 N. 19th Street, from 6-8pm.  Please join the community for a fun evening with activities for the whole family as we count down to the first live musical performance in conjunction with the revealing of the Moon Viewing Platform installation along the Rail Park’s Cut (between 17th and 18th Streets).
