What are my favorite Mural Arts’ murals of 2016?
Over the next two weeks, Mural Arts Philadelphia is asking a handful of Philadelphians what their favorite ‘Mural Arts Moments’ have been for an end-of-year video series they’re sharing on their Facebook… Be sure to follow along HERE to hear everyone’s favorite moments!
Titled ‘Honoring the Ancestors’, Diego’s mural is a portrait of his grandfather. As Mural Arts writes on their Instagram:
“Diego’s design incorporates pattern work inspired by the Huichol people of Mexico, who honor the connections between their ancestors and nature.”
New yarnbomb today on 11th street at Callowhill by Philly’s own Ishknits. Inspired by a Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones) quote, Ishknits’ new installation reads: “The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands.”
Ishknits has done a lot of incredible work lately around abuse, including this piece for Truth To Power and these pieces for Philadelphia, Goddamn. She’s even recently written an article for WHYY’s Newsworks about how the lack of justice compounds the pain and shame of abuse.
