Your Move: Game Pieces As Public Art

I was in Philadelphia to attend the Flower Show and while walking downtown, stumbled upon Your Move, the public art installation at the Municipal Services Building ingeniously created out of fiberglass and steel by artists Daniel Martinez, Renee Petropoulis, Roger White (1996).

Apparently, Philadelphia has more public art than any other US city. This was a great example of how public art can engage the audience, in this case kids and adults alike,

who are immediately drawn to a slew of larger-than-life Monopoly pieces, checkers, dominoes and chess pieces strewn about on the plaza.
