The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program manages information about hundreds of murals that have made Philadelphia famous. Muralfarm.org
is the site where information about the growing body of public art created by the Mural Arts Program has been planted. Pictures and detailed information about murals can be searched by artist, theme, date, location, neighborhood, and other key terms.
Each of the more than 800 catalogued murals has been assigned an identification number, and a single record. Within that record, there are photographs of the mural (and in some cases, "before" photographs of the mural site), and detailed information about the mural. In addition to the location and the title of the mural, details include the lead artist's name, names of assistants, partners and sponsors, dates of completion and dedication, description of mural, as well as tags and themes.
The search is powerful, but kludgy. Perhaps some of our Philly locals can help with choice locations.
