About the Project 

As would only be fitting for a member of the Three Stooges, this mural started out as a joke; but Philadelphians rallied around the idea of commemorating a city native, and Larry Fine.

Fine himself (born Louis Feinberg) grew up at 3rd and South Streets, the current location of the mural . Besides his career as a Stooge, Fine played violin, acted in film, and even earned money as a boxer. This mural is a testament to a true Philadelphia original.
