Thanks to the tireless work of Mural Arts Philadelphia (MAP), our city is internationally known for the public art displayed throughout our neighborhoods. Our tour features four murals that represent the culture and history of Germantown. We’ll start with The Women of Germantown, at Vernon Park, then walk down the Avenue to view Healing Through Faith and Spirituality and Seeing Our Voices, Signs of Germantown. Our tour will end with a discussion of We Still Here!, which celebrates the neighborhood’s “rich cultural legacy as a home for artists and writers… and highlights poetry from local youth and the community” (Mural Arts Philadelphia).
