Philadelphia is known as both the City of Brotherly Love and, to a slightly lesser extent, the City of Murals, and this is because of the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program, the largest public art program in the country. Established in 1984 as part of the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network, this program focuses on collective mural-making as a means through which to address deeper community issues and spark economic revitalization.

Today they engage communities in 50-100 public art projects each year while also maintaining its ever-growing collection through a restoration initiative, attracting 12,000 residents and visitors specifically to their sprawling outdoor art gallery every year. The programming is always evolving and expanding, with an eye out for progressive new projects like 2015’s Open Source.
