Murals on the Move Van Dedication

Murals on the Move is a partnership of Mural Arts and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation to expand art classes around the city, unite communities, and transform public space. We are thrilled to share an exciting new mural wrap for this crucial vehicle that brings art education to students throughout the city. Artist Carolina Gomez worked with Paige, Santi, and their students to reimagine the van wrap with a brand-new look. Carolina is a graphic designer and illustrator with a bachelor of fine arts degree in Graphic Design from Temple/Tyler School of Art. She has worked as an assistant muralist and an assistant teaching artist with Mural Arts Philadelphia. She lives in Philadelphia, PA. The Murals on the Move program seeks to deepen connections between young people and their communities/rec centers, foster positive relationships among youth and between youth and adults, and instill pride among young people who see their work displayed in public, provide basic art-making skills, and inspire students to pursue more in-depth art education. Join us as we celebrate this exciting new wrap!
