Me, My Life, My City: Submit a design for a new Sixers mural!

by: Carly Rapaport-Stein

Mural Arts has had a fun time collaborating with Philadelphia’s favorite sports teams over the past few years. With a Phillies mural and an Eagles mural already under our belts, it’s time to team up with the Sixers and create something new.

Not only are we joining forces with the Sixers to create a mural, we’re also giving young people a chance to drive the creative direction of the city. We’re holding a contest, Me, My Life, My City, to let students tell us how they see our city, how they are inspired by our city, and what stories they would like to see told on the walls of Philadelphia. It’s a chance for our young people to envision, imagine, and create, using art to amplify their voice and tell their story. And that, after all, is at the heart of Mural Arts: transforming our city through our diverse, powerful collection of artistic voices.

If you are a student in Kindergarten through 12th grade, we hope you’ll submit a design idea through this website. Not only will your work set the direction for the mural, but you will be honored at a home game and get a VIP experience with the Sixers!
