Celebrarting the Power of Water

As the Fairmount Water Works approaches its 200th anniversary in 2015, this National Historic Landmark sought to attract and engage new audiences with the first-ever FLOW Festival. An arts and science festival celebrating the Schuylkill River, FLOW showcased innovative and interactive installations presented by local artists. Hundreds of Philadelphians converged on the Water Works to enjoy this exciting new event.

As part of an aggressive media relations campaign, Simon PR secured a feature story in The Philadelphia Inquirer that profiled three of the festival artists and the Water Works director, and conveyed the mission of the festival as a glimpse into the future of the Water Works. Culture Reporter Stephan Salisbury’s story inspired piece communicated the enthusiasm everyone involved has for the potential of this hidden gem. Read more.

Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson and More @ Dell

With the completion of a $6.5 million renovation, a concert series packed with headline acts and the introduction of community events and classical music, Philadelphia’s Dell Music Center has enjoyed a resurgence this summer. Shows have routinely sold out and there is newfound -interest from area residents who had never set foot inside the Dell before. The new spirit was embodied in a late July concert featuring performances by the legendary Roberta Flack, Peabo Bryson and more.

As part of an extensive media relations campaign, Simon PR invited reporters and photographers, securing a review and photo gallery in Jump Philly. It illustrated the energy and excitement surrounding this show and told the larger story of the fun to be had at the Dell this summer. Read more.
