Street Lagoon; visualizing the urban water cycle in Philadelphia. Stacy Levy and community





Artist Stacy Lecy - see site here 


"If you are currently standing on the 300 block of Christian Street in the Queen Village neighborhood of South Philadelphia, you will notice the blue dots surrounding you. It’s not graffiti, it’s art - a community art project installed by Stacy Levy, the Mural Arts Program, the Philadelphia Water Department, and the local community, including the Courtyard Apartments. This project aims to raise awareness of the urban water cycle in Philadelphia. When it rains in Philly, the sewer pipes do not have the capacity to hold all of the polluted water, so much of it is released into our waterways.

 

After a community workshop with Stacy and local residents, a simple but effective design was created for the representation.

               

The workshop provided an opportunity for the community to voice their own ideas on how the movement of water should be presented."
