Finally a stretch of beautiful weather!! What to do, what to do?
But before the endless list of yard work and household projects settles in… think about taking advantage of the spring breeze with the kids.
Bubbles on the porch…
A bike ride
around the block…
Stroll through your local zoo…
Or for something unique & unexpected – visit the Philadelphia Mural Arts for a walking tour.
While the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program offers several tour options (including two new ones as mentioned below), please note that there are murals only viewable if on foot. The Mural Arts Program offers two walking tours: Mural Mile North and Mural Mile South, both available as guided tours through the city.
The two newest guided tours are Philadelphia’s Reimagined Landscapes Mural Tour and America’s First Highway Mural Tour. Each as described below per the press release information provided by Mural Arts Program. Click here for more information on tours, schedules, group tours and pricing. The Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia offers a variety of Youth Education Programs and has partnered with Commissioner Arthur C Evans and the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) on an upcoming Mural Arts Program in 2014 called the “Porch Light Project” featuring “a series of powerful murals that showcase how participatory public art can be used in addressing a variety of behavioral health challenges” (Press Release April 1, 2014).
“Philadelphia’s Reimagined Landscapes Mural Tour travels through Philadelphia
neighborhoods Frankford and Kensington to share stories of Philadelphia’s 17th, 18th, and 19th century commercial corridors, when the entire industrial area was known as the ‘Workshop of the World.’ Visitors view modern-day murals, listen to their stories, and discover how time changed these reimagined rust belt neighborhoods into reinvigorated 21st-century residential and creative arts enclaves.”
“America’s First Highway Mural Tour travels along the
country’s first highway, Lincoln Highway, also known as Route 30. Visitors learn about how the highway was born, where it started and ended, and view murals that dot the landscape on this tour through culture-rich West Philadelphia.”
