Last week I went on a bus tour with other Pearl S. Buck volunteers. Our main purpose was to view the murals in Philadelphia. The city has over 3,000 public murals which are all pretty amazing. This was started over 10 years ago as a way to combat graffiti. It is a wonderful story. Now other cities look to Philadelphia as an example.
|Just can't even envision painting these.|
This is called the Magic Garden. One man used all manner of items to create this fascinating area. Need to go back and walk through here.
If you are in the Philadelphia area, I recommend going on one of the mural tours. Well worth seeing! You can get more information at the Mural Arts website.
