It's Monday! Mural Arts...Mural Arts...Why Not!

Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program now has the Mural Mile as a way for anyone and everyone to experience 17 diverse murals located in Center City--on your own, using your cell phone or the downloadable podcast.  To promote their Mural Mile, the Mural Arts Program got together with movement artist Rhonda Moore and produced a Random Act of Dance!  Enjoy this video of a "surprise-spontaneous-choreographed-synchronized dance" in front of one of Meg Saligman's Philadelphia Muses.

Happy Monday! Hey . . .Wait . . . there's more . . .

If you are looking for something to do this Wednesday, July 14, (5:30 – 6:30 pm), you can meet 3 of the muralists:
Muralist David McShane at Famous Franks, 13th & Pine Streets
Muralist Meg Saligman at Theatre of Life, Broad & Lombard Streets
Muralist Willis Humphrey at Mapping Courage, 6th & South Streets
Or, on Thursday, July 15 (5:30 - 7 pm) come to Famous Franks (13th & Pine Street ) this  dressed as your favorite Frank (Frank Sinatra, Frankenstein, Ben Franklin--be creative!) and meet muralist David McShane. Free frankfurters for costumed attendees and people named Frank, Francine, Frances, etc.

And yes, the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program does have a Facebook Page! You should too! Why Not!
