Join aPA as we welcome the addition of Roxy Paine's Symbiosis to be installed at Iroquois Park on the Benjamin Franlkin Parkway. Presented by the Association for Public Art in cooperation with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, Symbiosis is on loan for one year, courtesy of the artist and Marianne Boesky Gallery.

Symbiosis, rising 34 free high, is a 3.5 tone sculpture created from standard industrial piping that was welded, formed and polished in the artist's studio to create two shimmering, interrelated organic forms that both buttress and weigh on one another, referencing the darker aspects of nature and the fierceness of its laws.

The Association for Public Art commissions, preserves, promotes and interprets public art in Philadelphia. For more information, visit associationforpublicart.org/symbiosis
