The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program
The Mural Arts Program is the nationâ€™s largest mural program.Â Since 1984, the Mural Arts Program has created over 3,000 murals and works of public art, earning Philadelphia international recognition as the â€œCity of Murals.â€Â The Mural Arts Program engages over 100 communities each year in the transformation of neighborhoods through the mural-making process, while award-winning, free art education programs serve nearly 2,000 youth at sites throughout the city and at-risk teens through education outreach programs.Â The Mural Arts Program also serves adult offenders in local prisons and rehabilitation centers, using the restorative power of art to break the cycle of crime and violence in our communities.Â Each year, nearly 10,000 residents and visitors tour the Mural Arts Programâ€™s outdoor art gallery, which has become part of Philadelphiaâ€™s civic landscape and a source of pride and inspiration.
