The City would like to provide information and hear from you about a public art project at the Broad, Germantown and Erie (BGE) intersection. If you live, work, shop, or take SEPTA near BGE, we want to know “What stories do you want to tell about this iconic intersection?”
Design has been completed on safety and beautification improvements to the intersection and construction will begin the Spring of 2023. In the meantime, we’re kicking off the outreach process for a “Percent for Art” project. The City’s Percent for Art program was created to spread beautiful and long-lasting artwork throughout the public spaces of Philadelphia that reflect the city’s diverse people, culture and history. The program requires that one percent of the total cost of this construction project be paid to an artist to create and install a site-specific public work of art at the Broad-Germantown-Erie intersection.
Your input will provide inspiration to the artists and directly influence the final selection of an artist and their design proposal.
