DIANE • PIERI

Manayunk Stoops: Heart and Home

 

was commissioned in 2006 through the Association for Public Art's (formerly the Fairmount Park Art Association) program New•Land•Marks: public art, community, and the meaning of place which brings together artists and communities to plan and create new works of public art for Philadelphia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lock Street Stoops

The project consists of nine mosaic “stoops” that enhance and interpret the physical and natural environment of the Towpath in Manayunk, a neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The artwork includes imagery inspired by the native flora, fauna, and industrial heritage of the Manayunk area. The stoops, situated in five sites along the Towpath between Lock and Cotton Streets, serve as seating elements along the Canal and are an interpretation of the front steps and entryways that mark the neighborhood's architecture and street life.
