Art and the mayor’s race

The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance is staying on top of art issues in the race for mayor of Philadelphia. I don’t recall this level of arts engagement in the race, and I think it’s exciting to have information on the subject, let alone a discussion of any kind of the subject. This is no doubt a recognition of the large role the arts play in Philadelphia’s economy. Here’s some info the GPCA sent along a couple of days ago:

Two more candidates for Mayor of Philadelphia reveal their positions on arts and culture.

Yesterday, Representative Dwight Evans announced his plan at the Northwest corner of Broad & Spring Garden Streets standing before the Don Gensler mural All Join Hands: The Visions of Peace. A summary of “Dwight Evans’ Plan for Promoting Philadelphia’s Arts and Culture Sector” can be found here.

Today, Former City Councilman Michael Nutter unveiled his plan while standing beneath Robert Indiana’s Love Sculpture in Love Park. Details of the plan …[are] here.

The Cultural Alliance will continue to keep you updated on the candidates. Be sure to check our website for the latest information.
