About the Project 

Philadelphia loves its Eagles, and the team loves their fans. A new mural on Darien Street, adjacent to Lincoln Financial Field, shows the respect and admiration shared between the franchise and its city.

Muralists and design partners Phillip Adams and Jonathan Laidacker have created a mural that captures the feeling of excitement and anticipation that a fan feels on game day. The design illustrates the full experience of going to an Eagles game: the anticipatory travel to the stadium, the excitement of being part of the crowd, and the thrill of the game itself. This concept, tied together with strong Philadelphia iconography, including the Eagles stadium, Philadelphia skyline, players and fans, creates an image and project that inextricably links the Eagles with the city of Philadelphia.

Throughout the fall of 2014, the Philadelphia Eagles hosted a series of paint days, during which fans and members of the Eagles organization were invited to paint portions of the 27,00-square-foot mural. The mural was installed and dedicated in spring 2015.
