Inspired by a big hole in a fence that he spotted along South Broad Street (at Washington avenue) when seeing the Mummer’s this year, Philly glass artist Justin Tyner decided to create a stained glass ‘psychedelic portal’ along with the help of his son Hendrix and his son’s friend Adrianna… LOVE this!

INCREDIBLE photos today of some Tel Aviv graffiti from Geoff Kees Thompson, of This Old City (undoubtedly one of my favorite local blogs. If you’re not regularly reading you crazy.) Geoff also happens to be one of the founders of the 5th Square!
Check out more Philadelphians’ photos of street art and graffiti from around the world HERE! (And be sure to follow Geoff’s many happenings on Instagram here, here and here.)
Earlier this month I was invited by Sharon Ahram of Need In Deed to speak to 4th graders at Graduate Hospital’s Independence Charter School about street art, graffiti, and the value of non-cooperate messages and imagery in our public spaces. And today, I received a handful of wonderfully illustrated Thank You notes from the kids!
Thanks again to Sharon and to Independence Charter School for inviting me out to talk about something I’m so passionate about!

INCREDIBLE (and super weird/random) ice sculpture today found by Matty Lucas beneath the Columbia Bridge in Fairmount Park…
Check out Matty’s Instagram (@moiety12) to meet the artist, Don R. Harrison, who sculpted the piece by the light of his car’s headlights over the course of 7 hours last night!
I. Love. Philly… This is AMAZING!
Sticker by Mousse… Love me some meme-y stickers!
