The Spring Arts District, a collaboration with Arts + Crafts Holdings, is Mural Arts’ first rotating outdoor gallery, located in the post- industrial Callowhill North Neighborhood.

The inaugural participating artists making murals in the district—Ryan Beck, Kid Hazo, Hawk Krall, Matt Moore, Martha Rich, Miriam Singer, and Andrew Jeffrey Wright— will be featured in this special exhibition that highlights their creative portfolios and smaller works on canvas.

Mural Arts Philadelphia is the nation’s largest public art program, dedicated to the belief that art ignites change. For over 30 years, Mural Arts has united artists and communities through a collaborative and equitable process, creating nearly 4,000 artworks that have transformed public spaces and individual lives. Mural Arts aims to empower people, stimulate dialogue, and build bridges to understanding with projects that attract artists from Philadelphia and around the world, and programs that focus on youth education, restorative justice, mental health and wellness, and public art and its preservation. Popular mural tours offer a firsthand glimpse into the inspiring stories behind Mural Arts’ iconic and unparalleled collection, which has earned Philadelphia worldwide recognition as the “City of Murals.” For more information, call 215-685-0750 or visit muralarts.org
