Mural Arts
For over 30 years, Mural Arts has united artists and communities through a collaborative process, rooted in the traditions of mural-making, to create art that transforms public spaces. Each year, 15,000 residents and visitors tour Mural Arts’ outdoor art gallery, which has become part of the city’s civic landscape and a source of pride and inspiration, earning Philadelphia international recognition as the “City of Murals.”

Check out the beautiful murals around the convention center (map here) or sign up for a public tour to see some of these incredible pieces of art. You can sign up for a tour here.
