Join Mural Arts Philadelphia and Philadelphia Brewing Company as we dedicate Industrious Light: Rowhouse Spirits by Phillip Adams. Light refreshments will be served. Speaking program at 7 pm.
Philadelphia’s industrial past plays the central role in Industrious Light, a dramatic new series of murals by artist Phillip Adams. In partnership with Hidden City Philadelphia, Mural Arts is creating a visual narrative of the city’s expansive history in brewing, textiles, tool-making, railroads and other key industries. The Philadelphia Public History Truck will provide additional context for the project through special community events and outreach. The second work in the Industrious Light series continues the dialogue of Philadelphia’s brewing history. The mural is located at the former Weisbrod & Hess Oriental Brewing Company, and the current home of the Philadelphia Brewing Company (PBC).The mural wraps the facade of Rowhouse Spirits, a newly opened distillery located directly in front of PBC. The mural depicts the relationship between brewing and distilling through the depiction of the industrial materials common to both. The front of the building speaks more to distilling and the back to brewing.
