Mural Arts Program

The art is positioned along South 9th Street and E. Passyunk Avenue.

Journeys South moves public art "off the wall" and invites you to examine the richly layered and evolving immigrant histories of South Philadelphia through four unique interactive community-based public art projects and free public tours that celebrate the stories of immigrants and their descendant - both long-time and new residents - to South Philadelphia.

The seven artists creating each part of Journeys South, five of whom were born and raised and/or currently reside in South Philadelphia, worked with community members, historians, and folklorists to gain a deeper understanding of the culture and history of South Philadelphia's legendary neighborhoods.

Four temporary works of public art will be on exhibition from April 27 - June 11, 2011 at various locations along South 9th Street and East Passyunk Avenue, bordered by Christian Street to the north and West Moore Street to the south. As part of the exhibition, FREE walking tours will take place every Saturday during the exhibition.
