The People Behind The Art

On my way home today, I had the wonderfully cool chance to run into the folks transforming the drab wall overlooking a Spruce Street surface parking lot into a work of art.

The still-untitled mural will feature scenes of people enjoying food (very appropriate for a mural on the wall of Vetri.) The artists are interested in titles if you've got one for them.

Developing the project commissioned by the Philadelphia Mural Arts program is lead artist Ann Northrup who studied painting at Boston University. She is assisted by Jessica Unterhalter, A MICA sculpture major, Julian Banks, a student at The Charter High School for Architecture and Design, Latifah Abdulla and Stephanie Acevedo. Stephanie's mom, Miriam will be joining the effort soon.

Northrup also executed the nearby William Way mural.

Stop by Spruce Street between Juniper and 13th and wish them welll!
