If you're walking along the Delaware River waterfront this Halloween season, you may spy something eerie-looking on the water.
A 90-foot light and water installation is set to make its North American debut at Philadelphia's Race Street Pier on Friday, Oct. 4.
"Ghost Ship," a 3D hologram of an 18th-century ship created by Romanian-based Biangle Studios, will appear under the Benjamin Franklin Bridge through the first weekend of November.
A self-guided audio tour highlighting the history of the Delaware River from pre-colonization to present day will accompany the public art installation.
"Ghost Ship" is part of the new Waterfront Arts Program, which aims to establish the waterfront as a cultural destination for Philadelphians.
The installation will be on view Wednesday through Sunday from 7 to 10 p.m. until Nov. 3.
It's curated by Ryan Strand Greenberg.
