About Us

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 and individual lives. Mural Arts engages communities in 60–100 public art projects each year. Our core program areas—Art Education, Restorative Justice, and Porch Light—yield unique, project-based learning opportunities for thousands of youth and adults.

Services Offered

The Art Education program provides a special combination of in-school and after-school arts-based programming for over 2,000 students at 25 sites across Philadelphia. Students participate in a wide variety of activities, studying everything from entrepreneurship to environmental stewardship through an artistic lens. Art becomes a platform for discovery, launching the types of personal and communal experiences that can shape a student’s path for years to come.
