Michael Murphy

Michael Murphy is a sculptor living and working in Brooklyn, NY. The Ohio native refers to his work as Perceptual Art because of its emphasis on experience and viewer perception.

Located just beyond the main entrance, this eye-catching sculpture is the ultimate test of perception, taking on the form of the Liberty Bell from one angle and William Penn from another. "My goal with this sculpture was to merge together two of the most iconic symbols of Philadelphia. I wanted to create something that spoke directly to the people of Philadelphia while referencing its rich history” – Murphy
