MURALS FOR 5TH STREET TUNNELS

Project Description

This collaboration with the Mural Arts Philadelphia enlivens the pedestrian and vehicular tunnels on Philadelphia's 5th Street, using art to craft a better transportation experience for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike. Wide swaths of color and pattern will evoke movement and continuity through the tunnels, brightening the spaces and affirming our missions of stewardship, service and community. The murals will also pay homage to the service of the behind-the-scenes bridge workers, those who built the historic Ben Franklin Bridge that rises above the tunnels, and those at work on the bridges that connect Pennsylvania and New Jersey today.
