(Philadelphia, PA) April 22nd, 2011 Jamie Moffett Media Design’s will showcase photography of the Reading Viaduct by filmmaker Jamie Moffett at PhilaMoca on April 29th-30th between 7PM and 11PM and May 1st between 12PM and 5PM in the Contemporary Mausoleum of Contemporary Art. The gallery show will also include artwork from graphic designer Hanan Abdulrahman, photography by Carl Sexton and music by Multiplybynine. The art exhibit will raise awareness of the future Reading Viaduct park and promote the film “Building a Park in the Sky,”, which will begin production at a later date.
Where the Reading Railroad once ran lies an abandoned train track waiting to be renewed and revamped for Philadelphian residents. Building a Park in the Sky will highlight how Philadelphia could build a park overlooking the city on top of those abandoned tracks. The film intends to follow a forgotten path to potential renewal and will offer resolution for a city’s betterment as citizens fight to make Philadelphia a greener place. The exhibit at PhilaMoca will highlight the beauty of the tracks and allow a mingling of individuals interested in being a part of the movement towards a greener Philadelphia.
“Philadelphia’s Reading Viaduct is a park whose time has come – New York has the Highline, Paris has the Promenade Plantee…we can build a park in the sky distinctly shaped by Philadelphia’s move towards a green, sustainable city. PHS proudly supports Jamie Moffett, Viaduct Greene and the many other advocates working towards this important endeavor.” Drew Becher, President – Pennsylvania Horticultural Society
“There is no question in my mind that Philadelphia’s Reading Viaduct Project will lead to the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.”- John Randolph of the Schuylkill River Trail
Come be a part of this art gallery exhibit that will be another step towards Philadelphia’s greener and picturesque future.
