Mural Arts Philadelphia to dedicate new mural "Declaration"
North Philly's got some new ink.
What's happening: Mural Arts Philadelphia is holding a dedication ceremony today for "Declaration," one of its newest and largest murals.
- It's painted on the west side of the parking garage at 150 N Broad Street.
Details: The mural, from artists Dwayne Reginald Betts and Titus Kapha, features the face of a woman of color with a heavily redacted version of the Declaration of Independence imposed over her profile.
- The artists worked on the project with individuals in a reentry program as well as men from a state prison. They redacted what they believed were the document's contradictory statements and rights that aren't granted to all, particularly people of color.
What's next: The dedication ceremony will take place in the parking lot at 15th and Race Streets, starting at 3pm.
