In a new partnership with Aimco, InLiquid is curating rotating exhibitions and organizing engaging public programming at their mid-century modern complex, Park Towne Place. InLiquid is also helping to project manage Park Towne’s acquisition of new works for their permanent collection. Exhibited work will feature pieces from InLiquid’s artist membership base as well as artists specially selected for the opportunity. The arts advisory relationship is part of a redevelopment initiative by Park Towne to become a vital member of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway cultural community.
Selections from the initial installation
The rotating exhibition will be on view at the space through January, when a fresh series of artist works will be installed.
Programs will highlight the artists and the history of the space through partnerships with other local, collaborative arts institutions.
October 8 – 16
Opening reception Monday, October 12, 5 – 8 pm
InLiquid presents artists Emily Cobb and Lisa Graf at Park Towne. Their highly sculptural and functional works push the boundaries of traditional craft. Utilizing 3D printing and traditional jewelry-making techniques, Cobb will create a large, custom piece specifically for the exhibit.
At the opening reception, learn about the restoration of historic Park Towne Place through a discussion of the mid-century modern complex’s initiative to become a vital member of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway cultural community. David Tryba, founder of Tryba Architects, will discuss the renovation of the complex, now the Museum District Residences. His passion for cities directs the firm’s work—the transformation of urban buildings, sites and systems into active, human-scaled and successful places. Reception from 5-8pm, talk will begin at 6pm.
October 17 and 18
Come tour the newly redeveloped Park Towne Place and join us for an Art Apartment Walk on October 17 & 18, noon-6pm!

Park Towne Place is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the first mid-century modern multi-family residential complex in the Commonwealth to achieve this designation.
