Bring on the nice weather and begin summer at the Navy Yard with some free, open-to-the public fitness programming and the newest public art display.

Navy Yard s Newest Public Art Project

On May 5, the Navy Yard unveiled its latest public art instillation, Greetings from the Mirage (#NavyYard Mirage), a domed sculptural art installation that will transport you to a surrealist soft desert created by sculpture artist Matty Geez.

The exhibit is open now through June 18, 2023, from sunup to sundown, Monday through Sunday. This artwork is free for all to view and experience, and it requires no ticket or reservation.

Greetings from the Mirage located at the corner of 11th St and Kitty Hawk Ave at the Navy Yard.

This is the sixth collaborative public art partnership between Group X, a group of Philadelphia-based artists, curators, and organizers whose members are anonymous, and the Navy Yard. Previous works include Alpha Sacred Beings (which is still on display), Enter the Cocoon, and the Navy Yard Sea Monster.
