The Mural Arts Program

So how many murals are there in Philadelphia? Let's just say A LOT! And remember the Mural Arts Program isn't only about painting. It's about teaching our youth about the art of painting. There are actually over 2,800 murals and the program has educated over 20,000 underserved youth in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia. I started noticing them when I worked at Taller Puertorriqueño. There are a good number of murals around El Centro de Oro; in fact there are a good number in each neighborhood.

You can also check out their "new" database of murals at MuralFarm.org. You can search by neighborhood, theme, artist and name.
