Brief Description

The Miller Symphony Hall is flanked by the Arts Alley (also called Court Street) to the south, and the Arts Walk to the north, both spanning from 6th Street to North Law Street. These connective walkways have a high level of material finish and connect the Miller Symphony Hall to Allentown’s core arts institutions, as well as to the City’s governmental and business center. The artist will create a work that will be located in the Arts Walk and/or Arts Alley. The work of art will be the result of a collaborative effort and must be musical in some way. If the work of art makes or plays sound it must be mutable or subtle enough that it doesn’t interfere with the adjacent residents or transmit sound into the adjacent Miller Symphony Hall. The work of art may be sculptural, light-based, sculptural relief, or similar. The work of art must be of a material quality that is commensurate with the high level of finish quality of the Arts Walk and Arts Alley.
