We call him the Street Eagle.

- Steve Powers on Connor Barwin

Eagles linebacker and Wall Ball honoree Connor Barwin was hard at work throughout 2015 revitalizing Ralph Brooks Park in South Philadelphia. Mural Arts was proud to be a partner on the project. Barwin handpicked artist Steve Powers, well-known as the artistic mind behind Mural Arts’ A Love Letter for You, to paint four walls surrounding the park. The ribbon-cutting ceremony brought well-deserved attention to the beautifully revamped park and its surrounding community.
