Mural Arts Month: Roots & Risk

Mural Arts Month: Roots & Risk 

At Mural Arts Philadelphia, risk is in our roots. Since day one, over three decades ago, we’ve never turned away from a challenge or given up on our mission of creating meaningful, collaborative public art. We take pride in our innovative and democratic process, which includes our neighbors at every turn and uplifts their dreams and stories.

During Mural Arts Month 2016, we continue the journey, never forgetting who we are and where we’ve been, even as we dare to imagine how far we’ll go: history and future; insight and ingenuity; roots and risk. Join us throughout October for exceptional panels, live art experiences, parties, and community celebrations around town.
