About the Project 

Designed and painted in part by Philadelphia resident and internationally acclaimed figure-artist Sidney Goodman, Boy With Raised Arm was painted in 1990, but later lost to construction. In 2002, the mural was recreated by artist Brian Senft at the corner of 40th Street & Powelton Avenue.
