Temporary Artwork in the Spring Arts District
About the Spring Arts District
In 2016, Mural Arts created the Spring Arts District, our first rotating outdoor gallery. The work is an ongoing collaboration with Callowhill’s Arts + Crafts Holdings.
Since 2016, the Spring Arts District has been home to permanent and temporary artwork by a range of Philadelphia-based artists. An initial wave of temporary projects by artists Matt Moore, Kid Hazo, Ryan Beck, Miriam Singer, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Hawk Krall, and Martha Rich were created throughout the summer and fall. In the summer of 2017, artists Glossblack and Lauren West created temporary works in the District, while artists Susan Nam, Whitney Alexander, and Shawn Theodore are currently underway on three more projects. These works—many created in collaboration with our Art Education students—have brightened this post-industrial corner of the city.
The collaboration is ongoing, so keep an eye out for more work in the future!
