Launched in July of 2021, the 9th & Penn Parklet is the newest ‘pop-up’ sculpture park in the Cultural District. Currently on display is James Rosati’s magnificent sculpture entitled Duo. Rosati is perhaps best known for his sculptures in stone from the 1960s and the 1972 stainless steel Ideogram that stood over 23-feet tall on the plaza between Towers 1 and 2 of the World Trade Center in New York City. He has more than 40 monumental pieces of sculpture located in the United States and around the world.
