(October 2011) – Grumman Greenhouse, a repurposed Cold War submarine bomber, designed by local Philadelphia sculptor Jordan Griska, will be installed at Lenfest Plaza October 18-21, 2011. Griska was commissioned and paid an honorarium by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) to design the sculpture to be located at the west end of the Lenfest Plaza. Grumman Greenhouse, a decommissioned Grumman S2F Tracker, will rest in Griska’s signature origami’d fashion and the repurposed plane will function as an active greenhouse. The Grumman Greenhouse was ushered to completion by Wayne S. Spilove and could not have been completed without the guidance and generous support of donors Richard Vague, Chris Prahbu, private aviator Charlie Chase and Squirrel, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the Philadelphia Fire Department, the Philadelphia Police Department, the Boilermakers Union, and Stoof veterans Ed and Nails. The Philadelphia Salon, a local advocacy group dedicated to supporting local artists, managed the project.
