The Experience

Thanks to the City of Philadelphia’s extremely successful Mural Arts Program — which celebrated its 25th anniversary from October 2008 through October 2009 — more than 3,000 murals have been painted so far on walls around the city. In every neighborhood you can see building walls transformed with images of heroes (from Dr. J to Frank Sinatra), fantastic landscapes or hope-inspiring scenes.

Maps featuring some outstanding murals are available from the program’s offices, at City Hall and the Independence Visitor Center where they will trace accessible driving, walking and bike tours you can do yourself.

You can also learn about the Program’s incredible Mural Tours by visiting Mural Arts Program.
