MARC decided to take a trip down to Philadelphia this past weekend to check out the city and explore their Mural Arts Program and its involvement in their communities.
We started our trip Saturday with a trolley tour around the city, taking a look at the iconic African American murals. Next we stopped by The Roots Mural Project Celebration, where they featured free food, music, screen-printed tees and, allowed us to get our hands dirty with some painting. We also got to meet Questlove, and see the projected layout for the Root’s mural. On Sunday we got to check out the Reading Public Market, as well as stop into the Mural Arts Program public headquarters.
