The spirit of transformation is at the heart of world famous Dutch artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn’s work and of Mural Arts’ collaboration with a range of funding and civic partners to revitalize and re-energize one of the oldest commercial corridors in North Philadelphia, where Germantown Avenue intersects with Lehigh Avenue.
Experience the powerful transformation of the Philly Painting project by taking a Wednesday North Philadelphia trolley tour. A representative from the community will educate guests on the history of the corridor, the mural making process, and explain how the project will unfold.
