Miss Rockaway Armada Descends on Philadelphia for Art Exhibition

Let Me Tell You About The Dream I Had, by the Miss Rockaway Armada

“Let Me Tell You About The Dream I Had” is an extensive exhibition by art collective Miss Rockaway Armada, currently nearing completion at the Philadelphia Art Alliance. The exhibition will feature a flotilla of floating sculptures on the Schuylkill River, two parades, musical and theatrical performances, a bicycle-powered ferris wheel by Paul the Plumber of Cyclecide, as well as art installations at the Art Alliance gallery. The Armada has a history of making nautical art pieces, starting with a convoy of raft sculptures that floated down the Mississippi in 2006.

“Let Me Tell You About The Dream I Had” premieres on August 20 with a flotilla and performance on the Schuylkill River, at the Walnut Street Dock in Philadelphia.
