Welcome to Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO, the Association for Public Art's award-winning audio program for Philadelphia's outdoor sculpture.
Available for free by cell phone, mobile app, audio download, or on the web, Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO features more than 150 voices from all walks of life – artists, educators, civic leaders, historians, and those with personal connections to the artworks. This innovative program invites passersby to stop, look, listen and experience public art in a new light.
Each audio tells the distinct story, civic effort, and creative expression behind each sculpture in a conversational style. Go at your own pace, listen to one stop at a time, and create your own sequence. Unique audio programs are available for more than 70 outdoor sculptures throughout Center City Philadelphia and Fairmount Park.
Museum Without Walls™: AUDIO is a program of the Association for Public Art in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, the William Penn Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Association for Public Art (aPA, formerly Fairmount Park Art Association) commissions, preserves, interprets, and promotes public art in Philadelphia. The aPA is the nation’s first private nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a “Museum Without Walls” that informs, engages, and inspires diverse audiences. Established in 1872, aPA integrates public art and urban design through exemplary programs and advocacy efforts that connect people with public art. We respond to the conditions of our time, adding new perspectives to the civic landscape and maintaining a legacy for future generations, while promoting Philadelphia as a premier city for public art.
