While confronting the impacts of COVID-19, don’t forget that the arts can be part of the solution


“During this stay at home time, Mural Arts immediately pivoted our work, creating a number of initiatives to employ artists, marry beauty and public health messaging, engage our students and restorative justice program participants, and continue to advance an agenda of art connected to important civic issues.
Budget cuts are hard; we know this is a difficult time for everyone. As part of city government, we’re all facing cutbacks. But at this point, we feel we need to be team players. The truth is, we care deeply about the city and we empathize with the mayor’s difficult decisions. We will keep our eye on our mission, and do our work with passion and integrity on behalf of the citizens of Philadelphia.”
