Over the course of three decades, the Mural Arts Program has created more than 3,800 murals and works of public art on the buildings, rooftops, bridges, and garages of Philadelphia.

The city celebrates the works of the nation’s largest mural program in October during Mural Arts Month.

Throughout the month, head out on walking and trolley tours of the Ninth Street Stock Exchange project, neighborhood gardens, mosaics and more. Additionally, a roster of free and pay-what-you-wish events this year includes a one-night-only sound and light installation in the tunnels under the in-development Rail Park with composer Nadia Botello and visual artists Matthew Suib and Nadia Hironaka, the unveiling of Mural Arts’ first rotating outdoor gallery and festivals taking place in South Philly, Bartram’s Garden and along the Spring Garden Street Bridge.
