Through community support and collaboration with internationally renowned artists, the Mural Arts Program has celebrated more than 30 years of participatory public artmaking.
In 1984, the Mural Arts Program was established as part of the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network. At that time, Artist Jane Golden reached out to graffiti taggers in an effort to redirect their talents into constructive public art projects. In 1997, the Philadelphia Mural Arts Advocates was established as a private nonprofit to advise and support the Mural Arts Program.
