Commissioned Installation by
Do you love Philadelphia's Parks? GLOW in the Park is Fairmount Park Conservancy's 6th annual event to showcase Philly's amazing parks and build the next generation of park champions. Please join us at the Reflecting Pool at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center as we light up the night and host fellow park lovers for an evening of music, food, drinks and surprises! Proceeds from this event will support creek restoration at the nearby Landsdowne and Montgomery Creeks.
Seraphin Gallery's own Robert Goodman will be exhibiting a specially commissioned art piece in collaboration with David Guinn inside of the reflecting pool at the Horticulture Center. They have this to say about their piece: "As artists, the reflective surface of the pool inspires us. Our installation multiplies these reflections in prismatic ways to evoke the untenable containment of the natural world: a tension embodied in sites like public parks, the very spaces GLOW celebrates and supports. These are spaces that balance formal planning and management with the vagaries and unpredictabilities of the natural world. This work consists of five structures that represent enlarged, exaggerated, and abstracted variations of garden architectural elements. Symmetry emphasizes and reinforces the formality of the pool and illuminated and reflective elements create a sense of thick natural space punctuated by severe bold shapes."
In addition to beautiful art, there will be food provided from Starr Events, Miss Rachel's Pantry (vegan), The Cow and the Curd, MILK + SUGAR, and Sum Pig Food Truck. Wine, soft drinks and beer will be provided from Yards Brewing Co. along with Moscow Mules with Tito's Handmade Vodka. The Dai Miyazaki Trio and Blues Junior presented by Mole Street Productions, Inc. will be performing.
