Philly Rising: Virtual mural design by Nile Livingston.

Showing the spirit of Philadelphia 

Submissions to Philly Rising are now closed. 

Philadelphia is a city of underdogs. We are resilient and tenacious. We are built on grit and mutual support. In the face of adversity, we rise to the occasion.

Within the last few months, a global pandemic and calls for racial justice catalyzed our community to uplift each other.

Just as each Philadelphian plays a pivotal role in the fabric of our community, each image will be woven into this collective piece that represents the resilient spirit of our city.

Together, Philly rises.
