The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) announces the launch of its newest initiative, the Waterfront Arts Program, and its kickoff public art installation set to debut this fall.

In October, a 90ft, site-specific 18th-century “ghost ship” will appear under the Ben Franklin Bridge. This three dimensional light and water-based installation, by Romanian-based Biangle Studio, is part of a month-long public art exhibition examining the shared history of free and forced migration on the Delaware River, and reflect on its role in shaping Philadelphia today.
