Sparks fly, ideas transform, the magic of creative collaboration is all around us! We come together from all over Philly to create something inspiring, something out of this world, something REALLY AWESOME.

Join over 250 incredible young artists as they share artwork reflecting their vibrant, creative exploration within the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. This year, students transformed themselves into anime characters, erected a Viking ship, and developed a multimedia street art campaign to confront bullying in their neighborhoods.

Each year, Mural Arts offers free art classes that empower over 1500 young people in Philadelphia to acquire leadership skills while beautifying their communities with public art. Their access to art is access to life. That’s why this show is REALLY AWESOME!
