The Mural Arts Program is the nation's largest mural program. Since 1984, the Mural Arts Program has created over 3,000 murals and works of public art, which are now part of Philadelphia's civic landscape and a source of inspiration to thousands of residents and visitor who encounter them, earning Philadelphia international recognition as "City of Murals." The Mural Arts Program engages over 100 communities each year in the transformation of neighborhoods through the mural-making process. The Mural Arts Program's award-winning, free art education programs annually serve nearly 2,000 youth at sites throughout the city and at-risk teens through the education outreach programs. The 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.
