The Top 7 Mural Arts Moments in May

by: Carly Rapaport-Stein and Steve Weinik

Every month at Mural Arts has something special. This May, we spent time in the sunshine creating and celebrating the the projects and people who make our work sing.

Artist Richard Haas designed Growth of a Metropolis to feature several centuries of fabulous Philly architecture, and acclaimed muralist Jon Laidacker rose to great heights to realize Haas’ design.

A stretch of Girard Avenue got a shot of color with new murals from MadC and Greg LaMarche as part of our Art Education program’s Reading Between the Lines curriculum.

Every year, we come together to celebrate the work we do as an institution and dream together about what next year’s work will encompass. Celebrating at The Fillmore, we danced, ate delicious food, and imagined an art-full future.

250 talented Philly students wowed us with their really awesome work at the annual Really Awesome Art Show.

Welcome to the Neighborhood! We celebrated the dedication of Jeffro Kilpatrick and Brad Carney’s visual description of Fishtown just moments before the kickoff to the Trenton Avenue Arts Festival and Kinetic Sculpture Derby.

Steve Powers’ Love Letter murals dot the Market-Frankford line in a series of images that are by turns sweet, funny, and poignant. Several of the collection got a pretty refresh this May, including this stunning sign.

Listen up! During May, artist Katie Bachler used the Listening School to engage in art and story-collecting activities with children and adults near Bartram’s Gardens.
