May 14, 2021 | Department of Community Planning & Economic Development Public Art Program

Ewell Plaza Art Explorations: Listening Sessions  

Artists Roberto Behar & Rosario Marquardt will host two listening sessions to gather community feedback on the planned façade artwork in Ewell Plaza. The listening sessions will take place virtually on Saturday, May 22 at 11 a.m. and Monday, May 24 at 6 p.m. Rosario and Roberto will introduce themselves, their work, and ask residents to offer input on the façade artwork. Both listening sessions will follow the same format based on the eight questions asked on the Ewell Plaza Art Explorations Survey. 

Saturday, May 22 at 11 a.m., RSVP at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_VgLHYoBpTw-SX4B4fYOT2w 

Monday, May 24 at 6 p.m., RSVP at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PPYH_czJSoKJLnNCSBERog 

Learn more about Roberto & Rosario’s background and work by visiting rr-studios.com or their Instagram page.

The 8-question survey is still active and residents are invited to fill it out on Engage Lancaster at engage.cityoflancasterpa.com. This survey along with the listening sessions will inform the design concepts of the façade artwork as well as other future art projects and programming in Ewell Plaza. 

The Lancaster Parking Authority has contracted artists Roberto Behar & Rosario Marquardt to create the façade artwork on their development in Ewell Plaza, which will be affixed to the new Lancaster Public Library building. The City of Lancaster is facilitating the community engagement for this public art project.
