As you explore Philly, you’ll notice there is a stunning mural painted on a building exterior every couple of blocks. You can thank Mural Arts Philadelphia, the nation’s largest public art program, for these Instagram-worthy creations. Founded as an anti-graffiti program in the 1980s, Mural Arts has produced more than 3,600 murals and earned international recognition for Philadelphia as the “City of Murals”. There’s even one right around the corner from our hotel – ‘Philadelphia Muses’ at 13th and Locust Streets, a contemporary interpretation of classical muses. Discover this and other transformed public spaces with a tour, available by foot, bike, trolley, and train.
