Street Art Starts Conversations

The Mural Arts Philadelphia project recently commissioned this challenging work, which is located in the heart of the city on South Broad Street at the University of the Arts. The piece is by Brooklyn-based street artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh who is known internationally for her “Stop Telling Women To Smile” posters, which attack street harassment.

Here’s what she had to say about the new mural:

“Questioning Whiteness is a public installation that is asking a white audience to find its role in the workings of racism and white supremacy. The questions posed here are attempting to point out whiteness, to name it, to look at, to see how it is complicit.”
