Tyler professor selected to create public art installation
A new public art installation is set for summer 2016 in Philadelphia’s historic Stenton Park. Karyn Olivier, associate professor of sculpture at Tyler School of Art, was selected by the city of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy to construct School Is Out. The large-scale blackboard will feature engraved pavers displaying quotes from regionally known public figures. The installation is one part of a larger renovation plan for the park.
