EmpireCovers Tours Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program

Each year, the EmpireCovers’ team gives back to the community. This year, the crew took a tour of the popular City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and participated in community service by helping paint the next mural.

The Mural Arts Program began in 1984 as a component of the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network. Amateur graffiti artists were taught how to create art with paintbrushes instead of spray-paint. The program now encompasses at-risk youth, incarcerated adults and people from surrounding communities. Philadelphia now has over 3,600 murals, which is more than any other city in the world.

At the end of the tour, the team was able to paint sections of a mural that will be displayed in Philadelphia in the next couple of months.

The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is a local organization that EmpireCovers is proud to support.
