Phila Street Art: 21st and Market



I ran into this "anti-truancy" mural on my way into Center City one night. It was painted in 2004 in a collaborative effort with students from the Intensive Delinquency Prevention Program on the side of the De La Salle In Towne School for Delinquent Youth. The students brainstormed and designed images that represent their lives, which are painted on the sides of the human figures. The artist is Donald Gensler with assistance from James Burns, Delia King and Angela Crafton. Sponsored by the PA Council of Fine Arts, the City of Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Department of Human Services.
