About the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program
For 28 years, the Mural Arts Program has united artists and communities through a collaborative process, rooted in the traditions of mural-making, to create art that transforms public spaces and individual lives. At the heart of our work are the 50 to 100 mural and other public art projects we lead each year. These projects range in scale and purpose, but all include a diversity of stakeholders in the creation of the artwork, and we work with partners to align our projects to existing strategies. This deeply collaborative approach to creating public art builds social capital, inspires a sense of communal ownership over public space, and empowers people to continue to work for positive change in their communities. Our murals also create unique project-based learning opportunities for thousands of marginalized youth and adults in our Art Education for Youth, Restorative Justice, and Behavioral Health programs.
