"Life tried to bury us but we are the root and the seed"
The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is the nation’s largest public art program, dedicated to the belief that ART IGNITES CHANGE. For 30 years, Mural Arts 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.They believe that their process empowers artists to be change agents, stimulates dialogue about critical issues, and builds bridges of connection and understanding. Their work is created in service of a larger movement that values equity, fairness and progress across all of society.
