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 https://www.muralarts.org
and

American Composers Forum https://composersforum.org 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).

Pennsylvania Ballet Planning New Building on North Broad – OCF Realty

Panorama 1905_blended_fused small

Per the architects, this new building will include dance studios, including a space that will also function as a performance space, complete with retractable seating. The building will also house changing rooms, a dancer’s lounge, a cafe, and the aforementioned administrative offices. While it’s unfortunate that the old terracotta building couldn’t be integrated into the new structure, we’re at least cheered that the new project will bring a contemporary flair to North Broad Street, and better street presence than the current setup.

Sting Arts launch celebrating Bees + Beer !
The rooftops of 990 Spring Garden and 448 N 10th Street are now home to rooftop bee hives. Each building has three hives with 50,000 bees producing honey. By mid-September, the Sting Arts bees are expected to produce 200 pounds of honey.
What’s all the BUZZ about? What’s all the buzz about?  Local bees from the rail park have been hard at work to produce a delicious floral honey that goes perfect in a Philadelphia brewed IPA. The honey is fermented warm to dry out this ale while at the same time leaving a sweet honey perception and aroma. Light and delicate this honey forward ale is a perfect template for west coast hops to express their intense tropical fruit and dank resins. Working in collaboration with Tools for Schools, 50% of all proceeds will be donated to this charity.    

Then head over to the Rail Park-
