Mural Dedication: eL Seed

Join us to celebrate the unveiling and dedication of artist eL Seed’s new mural at Market and Preston Streets. The event features the artist, Jane Golden of Mural Arts, Hazami Sayed of Al-Bustan, and West Powelton community members.

This event is the culmination of a collaboration between our Art Education program and Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture, a West Philadelphia-based nonprofit committed to presenting and teaching Arab culture through language and the arts. Building on Al-Bustan’s (DIS)PLACED project, this new mural from eL Seed explores themes of home, identity, and displacement.

Incorporating elements of graffiti and Arabic calligraphy, eL Seed is known for his unique style. His art appears on the walls of many cities, from Paris, London, and New York to Doha, Jeddah, and Melbourne, in addition to his home country Tunisia.
