What better way to spend a beautiful day than roaming Center City and the banks of the Schuylkill River, enjoying some of the impressive sculpture that the city has put on display? For guidance, look no further than this handy book. This updated and expanded edition includes many new works of art that now grace the city’s sidewalks and public areas, including a new section on the sculptures that are situated along Kelly Drive. From William Penn to Frank Rizzo (Mayor), from Philadelphia LOVE to Playing Angels, Philadelphia’s monuments—both new and old—honor notable people, events, and ideas even as they contribute to the beauty and majesty of the city.
