Ernel Martinez came to Philadelphia twelve years ago as a student at the University of Pennsylvania. There, he took a class with Jane Golden, Executive Director of the Mural Arts Program. Since then, Martinez has featured prominently in Mural Arts’ body of work, having worked as a lead or assistant artist in close to 30 projects across Philadelphia. His latest, ASpire: No Limits will be dedicated Saturday November 8.
On November 1st, we'll be concluding this year's Mural Arts Month with perhaps our biggest mural dedication of the season. ASpire is a mural and community outreach program inspired by and honoring the work of Shawn L. White, Ph.D.
Thanks to our advisory board member Lauren Dewitsky for writing this post.
