Philadelphia’s mural art project has changed the face of the city from grim and gloomy to colorful, cultural and spirited.
As a bonus, the kids who have joined the program to paint the run-down walls of urban buildings racked up a 100% record of graduating from high school.
The program has launched the careers of some artists who have returned to teach the craft to other kids.
In other words, it’s about so much more than simply creating awesome murals.
