On Saturday, Lenfest Plaza took one step closer to completion with the installation of Claes Oldenburg’s sculpture, Paint Torch. From the looks of it, considerable progress has been made at this site since our last update. Check the our mini-gallery of the installation. Photos are by Sean Tucker.

Raising the brush, now with bristles!

A wider shot

It's like Christmas morning!

We can’t wait for Lenfest Plaza to officially open up. Impressively, tt seems very likely that the project will wrapped up in time for the opening party on October 1st. In the meantime, we suggest heading over to North Broad St. and taking in the new sculpture, daytime or night. Either way, we’re impressed.
