Support Mural Arts!

by: Jane Golden


Dear Friend,

Art serves as both a reflection of our collective consciousness and a catalyst for individual transformation. This transformative ability is at the heart of Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Art Education program. Like a social gardener, Mural Arts is in the business of planting seeds, inspiring and empowering future leaders to emerge as agents of positive change. We take this responsibility seriously as we help nurture the next generation of creative leaders to make their mark on the world. Students in our Art Education program benefit from:

  • Collaborations with renowned artists locally, nationally, and internationally.
  • Involvement in significant public art initiatives.
  • Developing creative portfolios and showcasing their artwork at various exhibitions.
  • Opportunities for scholarships, internships, and a lifelong career in the arts.

Take, for example, the story of Dom Lyner. A Philadelphia native and a former participant of our Art Education program in 2015, Dom has become an integral part of Mural Arts, working now as a Teaching Artist. His artistic journey spans visual art and poetry, creating works that evoke tranquility, balance, and inspiration. His commitment to educating and empowering the next generation stands as a testament to the impact of our program.

We’re deeply committed to fostering creativity across Philadelphia, offering in-school and after-school programming for over 2,000 students annually at 25 sites. These programs aren’t just about teaching art; they’re platforms for personal and community development, shaping our students’ life paths through explorations of everything from entrepreneurship to environmental stewardship.

As we look to the future, we’re reminded of our mantra, “Art Ignites Change!” We’ve witnessed it for nearly 40 years, and we believe the next 40 can be even more transformative with your support. We invite you to invest in a future where art education opens doors, breaks barriers, and makes Philadelphia a city of endless possibilities.

Please consider making a gift today to invest in Mural Arts’ Art Education program. With your help, we can continue to Beautify, Inspire, and Empower.
