No deadline: The Philadelphia Mural Arts Program unites artists and communities through a collaborative process, rooted in the traditions of mural making, to create art that transforms public spaces and individual lives. We carry out our mission by annually engaging more than 20,000 people in the creation of 50 to 100 public art projects, including 2,000 individuals enrolled in one of our three core programs—Art Education for Youth, Restorative Justice for inmates and those re-entering society, and Porch Light for those in treatment for trauma, addiction, or mental illness. Through the liberating, joyful, and open context of artistic co-creation, we galvanize diverse constituencies, give voice to myriad perspectives, enhance the built environment, and bring visibility to issues in a way that sparks changes in perception and policy.
We are regularly recognized as a force for excellence and innovation in public art. Most recently, we had projects honored by the Public Art Network, the Venice Biennale, and the United Nations. A current exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts positions our work as a leading model for “social practice”, a term applied to creative processes developed by artists and arts organizations to address and ameliorate social, economic, and environmental challenges. We attract interest from an international audience of artists, scholars and practitioners, who attend conference sessions on our work, register for convenings we host in Philadelphia, and set up professional consultancies with our staff. More than 12,000 visitors annually participate in public and private tours led by our Tours Department.
