Janet Echelman of Studio Echelman is perhaps one of the most visionary artists of all time, at least in my humble opinion. Her recent project will introduce a giant insubstantial sculpture that will transform Dilworth Plaza in Philadelphia using dry mist.

Inspired by the history of the site that was home to the first publicly funded water fountain in America and to steam-powered trains, Studio Echelman decided to highlight the subway paths that have taken over in their place. The mist will be colored with lights and a water mirror will reflect it against City Hall. Stats for Giant Mist Sculptures Trending: Older & Mild
