Sixers Mural Dedicated

by: Mural Arts Staff

On Thursday, we dedicated 76ers: Beyond the Court, a brand new mural by artist Ernel Martinez. Located at Broad and Federal Streets in South Philadelphia, the mural honors the Philadelphia 76ers, and some of its most iconic players from the past. The celebration drew a big crowd, and plenty of press.
