Since we last published this map of must-see murals more amazing pieces have popped up in Philly—many of which have addressed topical, difficult issues. This time around we examined not only the newest murals, but also the ones that have the most powerful impact on their viewers.
A lot of the murals are part of the city’s Mural Arts program, which is the largest public arts program in the country, but there are a few extraordinary pieces by independent local artists and other art initiatives worth a visit, too.
Regardless of the program, they all tell a story and should be must-visits for your winter bucket list—some of them won’t be around after this season, so start exploring! They’re listed here from North to South.
