Our 2020/2021 Public Art Program
Spread Your Wings
2020/2021 | Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
“Spread Your Wings” makes dance personal and accessible through a variety of brand-new activities, all encouraging creativity and personal engagement with dance and storytelling. Through partnerships with local Philadelphia artists and organizations, Philadelphia Ballet celebrates the diversity of dancers, teaching artists, and communities it works with through an exhibition of photography, videography, visual arts, and live performance at Cherry Street Pier and sister cities park. The Spread Your Wings public arts project encompassed a variety of programs in addition to the exhibition at Cherry Street Pier, including a choreographic mentorship program for high schoolers, a digital storybook activity illustrated by Kailey Whitman, and live and pre-recorded art classes by Fleisher Art Memorial teaching artists—inviting Philadelphia to join in the art-making process.
