Mural Arts Month Event
Come crash the trash party! Join the folks behind Trash Academy – a “collaboratory” between Mural Arts, LandHealth Institute, artist Margaret Kearney, and South Philly community residents – for a series of activities including games with the Trashmobile, a hands-on trash sort with Maurice Sampson (Clean Water Action), and a presentation by RAIR. Celebrate trash advocacy and learn about trash interventions in the neighborhood.
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.
