About the Project 

Philly born artist Steve Powers has contributed some memorable imagery to Philadelphia and New York’s graffiti scenes. Powers’ work is there along the Market-Frankford Line in A Love Letter for You, on the walls around Ralph Brooks Park in Southwest Philly, in Fishtown on Front Street and inside La Colombe, and many more signs and designs throughout the city.

In early 2016 Powers’ created, Philadelphia, in Old City. There are tons of great Philly references woven into this piece, encompassing everything from art to food to music. Philadelphia became an instant classic on an iconic commercial corridor.
