Back by popular demand! TTN members have experienced the famous Philadelphia murals by foot and by trolley and now is your opportunity to experience the power of murals by train.
We have arranged a very special tour on the Market-Frankford elevated train line that will take you through a series of 50 murals that reference the city’s history of painted building ads, with a twist: each mural is an open-ended love letter, from an artist to his hometown, from an individual to a neighborhood, from one lover to another.
Mural Arts Philadelphia is the nation’s largest public art program. For 30 years, Mural Arts has united artists and communities to create art that transforms public spaces and individual lives, earning Philadelphia international recognition as the “City of Murals.”
Hear the stories behind these murals on this exciting and unique tour from a professionally trained guide. The tour begins at PAFA with a short walk to the train. Please note that there are several stops along the ride and a platform switch which is only accessibly by several flights of stairs.
After the tour, you are invited to join the group for lunch in a nearby restaurant at a location still to be determined. (The cost of the tour is $30 and does not include lunch.)
Registration, payments and cancellations must be made by March 15, 2019. Please note that no refunds will be given after March 1, 2019.
