The Mural Arts Program, which we say tons of great things about (but not everyone agrees with us), is in the midst of finishing their most complex project yet, entitled Philly Painting. The project, which transforms an entire commercial strip on Germantown Avenue, was created with world-renowned Dutch artists Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn, also known as Haas & Hahn.
The bright blocks of color have been laid on more than 50 storefronts between 2500 and 2800 Germantown Ave, and the artists took photos of the existing buildings along the corridor and used them to “investigate the local color spectrum.” The store owners on Germantown Ave each selected their own colors, which the artists then added into the design. The whole project will be dedicated on December 1st at 11AM.
And if you’d like to tour the whole project and learn more about it, Mural Arts is hosting a North Philadelphia Mural Arts Trolley Tour Featuring Philly Painting on November 28th and December 2nd, and you can purchase tickets for that over here.
