Brought to Dilworth Park by internationally renowned French visual artist Olivier Grossetete in partnership with Kimmel Center, hundreds of Philadelphians will construct The People's Tower --  a huge edifice without any cement or bricks! 1,400 carboard boxes and 18 miles of masking tape will rise into an 88 foot monumental-community-performance-architectural structure evocative of Independence Hall.

Join to help build the fantastical, epic, temporary The People's Tower!

Building the Tower can last anywhere between 5 to 8 hours.  Feel free to stop by anytime to help build the structure, or come see it completed until its ceremonial demolition Sunday, June 4th at 7PM!

This event is FREE and for ALL AGES!

On June 4, 2017, attend a public forum about art in public space, co-presented by the Kimmel Center & In Situ and hear a panel of star-studded public artists, place makers, and arts administrators dive in to what exactly is public space, and what it means to create art within it.

With the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and In-Situ (European Plateform for Artistic Creation in Public Space)
