MuralFarm.org is an interactive web application where pictures and detailed information about murals can be searched by artist, theme, date, location, neighborhood, and other key terms.
On January 29, 2009, the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program launched a brand new way to learn and manage information about the thousands of murals that have made Philadelphia famous. Muralfarm.org is the site where information about the growing body of public art created by the Mural Arts Program has been planted. At Muralfarm.org, an interactive web application, pictures and detailed information about murals can be searched by artist, theme, date, location, neighborhood, and other key terms.
While registered users of Muralfarm.org can tag favorite photographs, save searches, be notified when new murals are added, and enjoy special features such as viewing the Murals in Google Earth, authorized staff members can easily and efficiently manage information pertaining to each mural through a sophisticated asset management back-end interface. Take a trip to the farm — where information about murals grows daily — to explore Philadelphia, the "City of Murals."
Each mural has been assigned an identification number, and a single record. Within that record, there are photographs of the mural (and in some cases, "before" photographs of the mural site), and detailed information about the mural. In addition to the location and the title of the mural, details include the lead artist's name, name of assistants, partners and sponsors, dates of completion and dedication, description of mural, as well as tags and themes.
