DRWC is excited to announce the Waterfront Arts Debut Installation featuring a new, large-scale public art light and water Ghost Ship slated to make its debut this October 4 through November 3 at Race Street Pier

This 90ft, site-specific Ghost Ship will appear under the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, as a three-dimensional hologram. This will be the North American premiere of the piece by European-based Biangle Studio

Commissioned by DRWC and curated by Ryan Strand Greenberg, Ghost Ship will be complemented by a self-guided audio tour highlighting the history and various narratives of the Delaware River. 

Ghost Ship is a reflection of the goals for new public art and creative programming as part of the Waterfront Arts Program which includes:

  • Embracing the evolution of the Delaware River Waterfront and its unique properties

  • Creating new experiences and relationships for people to share in along the Delaware River Waterfront

  • To celebrate our city’s rich diversity, art, and culture

  • Serving as a catalyst for education and stewardship

  • Exploring a broad range of types, scales, forms, and frequency of art 

The Waterfront Arts Program and Ghost Ship is funded by the William Penn Foundation.
