More than 3800 murals have transformed the city of Philadelphia and been a model and inspiration for cities around the world. This program has brought together artists, writers, designers, musicians, students, social service providers, the young and the old, and has taught art skills, civic engagement, and personal responsibility. It has helped many ex-offenders train for new jobs, provided a way for people to give back to their communities and has been a huge catalyst for communal healing. This is a beautiful celebration of three decades of creativity and collaboration.
