Mural Dedication: Our Tacony, Yesterday and Tomorrow

Join us as we dedicate Our Tacony: Yesterday and Tomorrow.  This mural is a celebration of the past, present, and future of Tacony as described by the people who know and love it most. The design process for this collaboratively conceived neighborhood-scape began in the Tacony Library and Arts Building, where library patrons ranging in age from two to seventy-two wrote their favorite details of Tacony on post-it notes: ice cream truck, hoagies, grindstones, Vogt pool. The responses ranged in theme from Tacony’s iconic 19th century architecture to delicious locally produced foods to favorite parks and playgrounds for family-friendly fun. The process continued through weeks of conversations with community members and through the guidance of the Historical Society of Tacony, who shared their archives and their knowledge with the artist, Mariel Capanna.
