A Mural Arts January in Pictures

Philadelphia iconography and inside references abound in Steve Powers’ latest work, Philadelphia.

 

"I always liked art, but I never had experience before I came here. You can express your feelings through art."

Antoine, 13 years old

"Art heals, art unites, and art changes minds in convincing fashion. Art drives the agenda. Great art is never silent, can’t be ignored and serves poorly the status quo."
