Y’all, so excited to announce today that Streets Dept‘s 2nd Saturday Street Art Tours are BACK for our 2018 Season!

Streets Dept’s 2nd Saturday Street Art Tours are a new kind of guided walking tour that explore the art in Philadelphia’s public spaces one neighborhood at a time! Each month we walk a different neighborhood in search of street art, graffiti, murals – and more! Each tour hosted and led by me,’s founder Conrad Benner.

For the kick-off of our 2018 Season, we’ll be checking out one of Philadelphia’s most active and vibrate neighborhoods for graffiti and street art: Kensington – including the graffiti mecca that is 5th and Cecil B. Moore!


I chose Kensington for the kick-off of this season’s tours for a few reasons. First, it’s always the neighborhood I check out if I’m in need of some new inspiration or (frankly) some new content for my blog; 5th and Cecil B. Moore in particular is one of the most active and accessible graffiti spots in the city that’s not in an abandoned building or along a train corridor (where I’ll never, of course, host a tour.) Second, now that 2nd Saturday Street Art Tours are in their second year, there’s naturally going to be some repeat neighborhoods in this year’s line-up that we explored last year, but I wanted to start this season with a neighborhood I’ve never offered a tour of! Lastly, and most personally, it’s only a handful of blocks from where I grew up in Fishtown, so I know and have known the area well.

So excited to bring these 2nd Saturday Street Art Tours back for a second season, and I hope you’ll join me to make these as successful as last year’s.
