You Build It, You Break It
From May 30-June 2, help assemble The People's Tower! Over four days of workshops, the public can work with internationally renowned French visual artist Olivier Grossetete and the Kimmel Center to construct the cardboard building blocks that will come together to create a tower in Dilworth Park on June 3. To reserve a spot in a workshop, click here. The 1,400 cardboard boxes and 18 miles of masking tape will rise into an 88-foot monumental-community-performance-architectural temporary structure evocative of Independence Hall. But art is fleeting - The People's Tower will be demolished on June 4 with your help.
