Titled ‘14 Movements: A Symphony in Color and Words‘, the brilliant color that’s recently filled South Broad street’s median from City Hall to Washington avenue is the work of artist Mat Tomezsko with the help of Mural Arts and the DNC Host Committee.

Much more about the temporary installation can be found at Mural Arts’ blog:

“The visual movement of 14 Movements unfolds like a classical sonata: rippling colors and forms are introduced, developed, and then revisited as onlookers make their way up or down one of the city’s busiest corridors. The work will also feature words and imagery found in Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher’s celebrated book of poems, Monk Eats an Afro. Tomezsko’s painterly symphony represents the desire of all people to be seen, heard, and represented, and reflects the importance of placing open discussion and the exchange of ideas at the forefront of our democratic society.”

Love this, and LOVE whenever Mural Arts goes big like this, or like their recent Parkway mural with artist Brad Carney!
