  • United House of Prayer For All The People: Burton J. Dodge. 16th and Fitzwater Streets
  • Nelson Mandela:  Ben Slow. Smedley and Fitzwater Streets (This mural was painted in September 2013. It’s not formally part of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, although they did provide assistance. I happened to have discovered it shortly after Mandela’s death, while reading about Nelson Mandela’s life. You can read more about this mural here.)

A special thanks to Anna Szlavi. Anna is a Fulbright Visiting Student Researcher from Hungary who has spent most of this academic year in Philadelphia. She developed a love of the city’s Mural Arts Program and reached out to me having found this site. I had a great time meeting with Anna and discussing the murals and the impact on the communities of Philadelphia. Anna was kind enough to point me in the direction of a few murals in the  West Philadelphia area that I hadn’t seen before.
