Now that the Phillies have crashed and burned yet again in post-season play and the despised Iggles have been thoroughly Vick-timized , Philadelphians can turn their attention back to their usual pursuits of hating on NY sports teams and shooting up bars on Saturday nights. But if there’s one things all Philadelphians can agree on, it’s their mad love for street art. And especially their hundreds of fantastic street murals that cover public spaces and buildings throughout the sprawling metropolis.
The much loved Mural Arts Program creates and manages nearly a thousand fabulous public artworks around Philadelphia. And they’ve recently revamped their terrific website, Mural Farm, which contains detailed information on more than 800 amazing murals. You can seach the site by topics, neighborhood, time period and artists. So check it out and discover why Philly is the epicenter of mural art.
