Put art in it and they will come. That was the thinking behind Hidden City's festival of 2009, which drew Philadelphians into Girard College, the German Society, Disston Saw Works, and other historic structures they might never have entered otherwise. Now Philadelphia Sculptors, an artist-run organization of more than 250 sculptors, collectors, and art professionals, is counting on the Globe Dye Works in Frankford, a 19th-century relic of the textile industry, to exert a similar allure.
