Location of the Work of Art
The Catto Memorial statue will come to life on the southwest apron of City Hall. This placement, adjacent to the newly renovated Dilworth Plaza, will ensure that millions pay homage to an important historic figure. The Catto statue will be the only public work of art in the City of Philadelphia dedicated to a sole African American.
