Advisory Council

About the Advisory Council 

The Mural Arts Philadelphia Advisory Council is a group of active leaders in our community who support the Mural Arts staff and Board of Directors in advocating and fundraising for the organization. Members are committed to increasing Mural Arts Philadelphia’s visibility, promoting our projects and programs, and supporting an annually selected project or program area.

What is the Advisory Council working on now? 

For the current fiscal year (July 1, 2019–June 30, 2020), the Advisory Council voted to support Mural Arts’ innovative Color Me Back, a same-day work and pay program located in Center City’s Suburban Station. For more information, check out the Color Me Back program page.
