Mural proposal at 417 North 20th Street
These huge works of art are first painted on canvas sheets, then adhered to the wall, then sealed in place. The public helps paint the canvas.
The Philadelphia Mural Arts program attempts to beautify our city by turning blank walls into works of art. There are over 3,000 murals in Philadelphia, two of which are already in the Baldwin Park neighborhood, as seen below.
