Mural Arts mourns the loss of our colleague and friend, Bob Phillips.
With deepest sympathy,
We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our colleague and friend Bob Phillips.
From 2004-2006, we had the privilege of collaborating with Bob and his wife (and business partner) Cheryl Levin on a sculpture and mosaic project called Metamorphosis (31st St. & Girard Ave., dedicated May 1, 2006, see photo above). Intended as a gateway from the Fairmount/Brewerytown neighborhoods to the Philadelphia Zoo, the project was a milestone for us and for Bob & Cheryl. Bob was an incredibly talented artist, and a generous, humble man. We remember him with affection and respect, and take pride in the work we accomplished together.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cheryl and the Phillips-Levin family during this difficult time.
