More about this Route

Experience firsthand how art ignites change. Explore the world’s largest outdoor art gallery and get to know Philadelphia’s stunning mural collection on a guided tour. Weave through neighborhood streets on foot and get inspired by the incredible public art that makes Philadelphia the Mural Capital of the World. Professionally-trained guides offer a behind-the-scenes look and share the in-depth stories about the people and communities that inspired and shaped each Mural Arts Philadelphia project. Visitors also learn about the mural-making processes and how the work of the organization has evolved over its nearly 40-year history.

Discover on the foot the many stunning and inspirational murals in the Bella Vista, South Street, and Hawthorne neighborhoods. Led by a professionally-trained tour guide, guests get an inside look at the unique character of the area, hear stories behind the murals, the artists, and how Mural Arts has evolved to impact every neighborhood of Philadelphia. The murals on this tour exemplify new beginnings and the pioneering spirit and grit that is at the heart of Philadelphia and its residents – past and present. These include Remembering a Forgotten Hero, by Keir Johnston and Willis “Nomo” Humphrey that celebrates early civil Rights activist Octavius V. Catto in his own neighborhood and David Guinn’s Autumn Revisited, in the beautiful Palumbo Park, adjacent to the Fleisher Art Memorial.
