A Year of Empathy, Imagination, and Change

by: Laura Kochman

Through Mural Arts, Philadelphia and its neighborhoods have been able to identify themselves, transform themselves, through the work.

- Councilwoman Maria Quiñones-Sanchez

In 2017, Mural Arts brought beauty and art to all kinds of spaces. We empowered neighbors to come together, to take civic issues into their own hands. We took time to celebrate our leaders and our heroes—we worked with local and international artists to create world-class works of art in our own backyards. And we produced Monument Lab, a citywide public art and history project that captured the imagination of our city and the entire country.

Individually, collectively—your community, your neighbors, your neighborhood—we have a moment to kind of claim it. This is not a time to sit still.

- Artist Karyn Olivier

Our work has real, measurable impact, and we couldn’t do it without you.
