What we do
For over 30 years, Mural Arts has created nearly 4,000 artworks to transform public spaces. Artists from within Philadelphia and around the world create murals alongside members of the community. With each new artwork, Mural Arts aims to:
- Empower individuals, neighborhoods, and groups.
- Start conversations that bring people together.
Program focus areas
- Youth education
- Restorative justice
- Mental and behavioral health and wellness
- Public art and its preservation
Popular mural tours offer a firsthand glimpse into the stories behind Mural Arts’ iconic collection, which has earned Philadelphia recognition as the City of Murals.
Jane Golden is the founder and executive director of Mural Arts Philadelphia. Under Golden’s direction, Mural Arts has created more than 4,000 works of public art through innovative collaborations with community-based organizations, city agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools, the private sector, and philanthropies. Through these partnerships, she has developed rigorous programs in youth art education, restorative justice, and behavioral health that have made it possible for thousands to experience the power of art. She has also overseen a series of complex and award-winning public art projects, and is sought after internationally as an expert on urban transformation through art. Golden has received numerous awards for her work, as well as several honorary doctorate degrees. She has co-authored two books about the murals in Philadelphia and co-edited a third, published on the occasion of Mural Arts’ 30th anniversary.
