Today, just an hour ago actually, James Peniston’s Keys to Community sculpture was unveiled in Old City Philadelphia. Sitting at nine feet tall in a courtyard at 4th and Arch St, the city’s firefighters teamed up with local school children to draw off the veil, which was hoisted up using a fire engine. Even Ben Franklin himself came out and gave a rather humorous speech.
Sitting just one block away from Franklin’s grave and three blocks from Independence Hall, the statue is certainly a wonder to behold. Read up on James Peniston and the sculpture in some previous Uwishunu entries, and be sure to go see it for yourself!
