“What the Mural Arts Program offers for young kids is their chance to tell a story.”

- Catzie Vilayphonh

On Monday we brought you the first video of a three-part Philadelphia Mural Arts Series which featured a discussion with hip-hop DJ Rich Medina. In the second video of the series, award-winning spoken word poet and writer Catzie Vilayphonh offers her thoughtful insights on the Mural Arts program and what it means to the city of Philadelphia. Speaking beneath the If You Were Here I’d Be Home Now mural, one of the fifty murals that Steve “Espo” Powers collaborated in painting for his Love Letter series, Catzie expresses her love for her home city of Philadelphia and appreciation for the tremendous opportunities that the Mural Arts program provides for the city’s creative youth.

To donate in support of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and the inspiring work they provide, please visit their website. Also, find time to visit the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before April 6th to check out their interactive Beyond the Paint exhibit in celebration of the anniversary.



A very special thanks to the collective of video creatives at Electric Tweed  for their outstanding work on the production of each these videos.
