You’re invited to a sneak peek of Washington Square’s installation of the Monument Lab sculpture project from Philadelphia artist Kaitlin Pomerantz, On the Threshold (Salvaged Stoops, Philadelphia)! We welcome you to stop by from 1–3 p.m. and learn more about the craftsmanship and traditional construction techniques being used to fully realize the project.

About Kaitlin's piece:
On the Threshold features stoops from demolished buildings throughout the city of Philadelphia, now finding new life in Washington Square Park. The collected fragments of a dozen stoops will be reconstructed and restored by skilled masons to temporarily replace a section of benches in Washington Square Park’s east side passage. On the Threshold will be on view to the public from September 16th to November 13th.
