More detailed description >

Since it began, the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program has produced over 2,800 murals which have become a cherished part of the civic landscape and a great source of pride and motivation to the millions of residents and visitors who encounter them.

In fact, the Mural Arts Program's unique efforts have earned Philadelphia international praise as the "City of Murals".

As stunning as the murals are themselves, they are most importantly the visual products of a powerful and collaborative grassroots process in communities.

The mural-making process gives neighborhood residents a voice to tell their individual and collective stories, a way to pass on culture and tradition, and a vehicle to develop and empower local leaders.

This fascinating tour offers a "behind the scenes" look at how these famous murals are made. Filled with fascinating anecdotes and stories, the tours leave individuals with an understanding of the complexities of mural-making and an appreciation of Philadelphia as the world's largest outdoor art gallery.
