I’ve watched the progress on the new mural at the corner of Germantown Ave and Sharpnack St for a year, ever since I noticed the scaffolding go up against an old brick wall and the outlines of the mural take  form.    

‘It’s All About Community’ is a  project of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program,  with the Mt Airy USA Commercial Corridor Revitalization project, and the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health/Mental Retardation.  On Jul 13, 2010 the sponsors, friends and neighbors came out for the dedication which featured the “It’s All About Community” Choir – directed by Michelle Kornegay, and the Muralist – Jon Laidacker.    

Special thanks is due to Rob and Chris Murray, the building owners, for their  contribution of the  space for this lovely mural.    

The mural design features a park, those familiar Germantown Ave cobblestones, and a vintage green trolley. Neighbors meet and talk. There are no groups, just one single community.

      Kristine, Thanks for commenting on my post about the Mt Airy Mural. We have become a city of murals thanks to the Mural Arts Program which started as a way to combat graffiti and has become a major attraction. Kathleen
