Hidden City Philadelphia

Weekly Press: The opulent Met and Hidden City

Inquirer: a focus on Phila’s hidden sites

Hidden City Philadelphia is a unique arts festival that brings Philadelphia’s best unknown historical and architectural landmarks back to life through original works of art. It runs May 30 through June 28, 2009.
There are many historical and architectural landmarks around Philadelphia that at one time were all important to the city’s neighborhoods, but their significance – and in some cases their existence – has been forgotten over the years, making them hidden to the people who walk, run, or drive by them every day.  Performing and visual artists have created dance, music, sculpture, video, print, and mixed media pieces inspired by the history and architecture of their selected sites to draw attention back to the important people and places forming Philadelphia.
