Jun 20 Color and motion brighten Broad Street during the DNC by: MAP Staff ShareFacbookTwitterEmail Mat Tomezsko and Jane Golden in front of a rendering of 14 Movements. Photo by Steve Weinik. Running down the center of South Broad Street, along its median, Mat Tomezsko’s 14 Movements: A Symphony in Color and Words is a brightly colored, mile-long temporary mural that serves as a vibrant gateway between City Hall and South Philadelphia during the Democratic National Convention. Presented by Mural Arts Philadelphia and the DNC Host Committee, the mural will be painted on a temporary vinyl ground covering and will stretch 14 blocks from City Hall to Washington Avenue. Installation of the ground mural will begin June 20 and take about a month’s time. The visual movement of 14 Movements unfolds like a classical sonata: rippling colors and forms are introduced, developed, and then revisited as onlookers make their way up or down one of the city’s busiest corridors. The work will also feature words and imagery found in Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher’s celebrated book of poems, Monk Eats an Afro. Tomezsko’s painterly symphony represents the desire of all people to be seen, heard, and represented, and reflects the importance of placing open discussion and the exchange of ideas at the forefront of our democratic society. Artist Mat Tomezsko is a Tyler School of Art graduate living and working in Philadelphia. His work has been exhibited at art spaces regionally and nationally including Crane Arts, the Painted Bride, CFEVA, Wexler Gallery, the DCCA (Wilmington, DE), and Garcia Squared Contemporary (Kansas City, MO), among others.
