Philadelphia Mural Arts
In our continuing effort to
celebrate the richness of our neighborhoods we take a look at Philadelphia'
neighborhood Mural Art Gallery. 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, to put it mildly.
