What Artist(s) Would You Like to See Paint America’s Largest Mural on the Back of the PSFS Building?
Yesterday I started a petition to ask the Mayor (and whoever else needs to be asked) to fund a mural to be painted on the back of the PSFS Building. With already over 50 signatures in only 24 hours, I’m beginning to get excited that I might not be the only one who sees this as a real possibility and a really awesome opportunity for Philadelphia to make a HUGE statement about the role of the arts in our city, and I wonder how you might envision this mural-to-be…
So, if we got enough signatures, got enough press, and worked out all the concerns about it being a historical building (even though the back is already painted black, so I can’t really imagine what damage blue, or purple, or pink paint could do) and the city decided to paint a mural on the back of the PSFS Builing, what artist, or artists, would you like to see take up the job of painting the largest mural in America?
I have a few ideas myself, but I wonder who you’re thinking… Let me know in the comments, and, if you haven’t already, SIGN THE PETITION HERE!! And, please, share with your friends.
This is a long shot, but I honestly believe it can happen, with enough support.
