Philly The "City of Murals"

If you go exploring in Philly's downtown area, your sure to find amazing restaurants, designer boutiques, and hip hop dancers breaking in LOVE park. But there is one thing that sets this city a part from others, and that is its mural art images. The Mural Art program started in 1984 as an initiative to keep the city free from graffiti. Soon, the graffiti artists channeled their energy into painting murals around Philadelphia. The Mural Arts program has produced over 3,000 murals and the programs unique efforts have earned Philadelphia international praise as the “City of Murals.”
