Murals on the Move

Coming soon to your rec center: exciting, hands-on art activities!

Coming soon to your rec center: exciting, hands-on art activities! This new initiative from Mural Arts Philadelphia and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation will expand art classes around the city, unite the community, and transform public space.

Teaching artists from Mural Arts will arrive at rec centers around the city for three-week sessions in the spring, summer, and fall of 2018. When you see our colorful van, fully stocked with arts supplies, you can look forward to creating fun, vibrant art that represents you and your community.

Every recreation center will receive final artwork created by the artist, community, and teens so that they can put the art on display for the public.
