On Friday, October 5th, James Peniston’s “Keys To Community”, a nine foot bust of Benjamin Franklin, and over three years in the making, will be dedicated in Old City.
Comprised of over one thousand keys donated by elementary school students, which were incorporated into the surface of the work, a ton of bronze, and nameplates from fallen Philadelphia firefighters dating all the way back to the 18th century, this sculpture connects people of all ages past and present, living and deceased, from Philadelphia.
