Guide to Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition in Philadelphia’s Historic District

Seek out this curated exhibit of 13 works in Old City, Society Hill and along the Delaware River

This summer, a revolutionary art exhibit pops up in Philadelphia’s Historic District.

From Thursday, May 25 through Tuesday, July 4, Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition showcases free public artwork that interprets the spirit of revolution at 13 locations in the Historic District.

To present the exhibit, we teamed up with Conrad Benner, founder and editor of street art photo-blog, who curated a selection of artists and artwork that gives locals and visitors 13 more reasons to explore the city’s most iconic neighborhoods this summer.

The selected street artists — one chosen for each of the stars featured on the original American flag — show new and existing works that showcase different interpretations of “revolution” and how that concept might challenge the social and political status quo.

The featured works, created by forward-thinking artists like Kid Hazo, Michelle Angela Ortiz, Shawn Theodore and more, will be found both indoors and outdoors throughout the district in places like Franklin Square, Spruce Street Harbor Park, FringeArts and the National Museum of American Jewish History.
