Fifty-five ideas for the Philadelphia arts have been chosen as finalists in the 2012 Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia. 1,267 applicants answered our question: “What’s your best idea for the arts in Philadelphia?” A diverse group, including individual artists, artist collectives, community groups, jazz and classical music organizations, theater companies and educational institutions, offered a wide array of innovative ideas.
Earlier this year, more than 1,000 artists and artist-run groups pitched their big ideas for the Philadelphia arts. And on Tuesday, we’ll be announcing the finalists of the 2012 Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia.
This year’s finalists offer a wide array of innovative ideas to engage and enrich Philadelphia’s communities.
