Philadelphia Mural Arts

In our continuing effort to celebrate the richness of our neighborhoods we take a look at Philadelphia Mural Art Gallery in Puerto Rican  neighborhoods.
These very professional efforts are community involved undertakings made possible through grants and business sponsorships. Seen through to fruition, by dedicated artist. In some cases painting in neighborhoods off the beaten path.
