Mario Lanza:  Diane Keller

Several of the murals on the "South Philly" pages definitely have a different "feel" to them. And they should. The Mural Arts Program works with the community to develop murals that are designed and created by mural artists with community involvement. Like the Mario Lanza mural above, these murals are definitely "South Philly." I first saw many of the murals on these pages when my wife and I took a Mural Arts Program tour. I took some pictures during that tour and returned a few days later to take many more.
