a love letter for youPosted: January 12, 2010
A Love Letter for You. I believe that I have seen an image of this project before, but it still amazes me. It is a project by Stephen Powers with the City of Philadelphia (where it’s located), and is parts of love-letters painted on the walls, viewable from Market elevated train. It includes both American and international artists.
I love the murals that have been produced from this project. It revives the art of hand-drawn signage, which is a dying art (and extremely hard to do).
They are such a welcome, vibrant part of the urban architecture. The project also has classes where people can learn about the art of sign-making and even work with the project.
I don’t live too far from Philly… perhaps this is the perfect occasion to buy a cheese steak and ride the train! That, or maybe Baltimore could figure out a cool project like this to implement around the city. Probably better off with the former choice.
