Steve Powers has a great new project beginning soon in Philadelphia.
Above and below…”are the first two lines of a love letter spanning 50 walls and roof tops to be painted in West Philadelphia facing the Market-Frankford Elevated train. The letter is meant for one with meaning for all, and in a larger sense, will be for West Philly from West Philly. In addition to the walls, we are opening a sign school to teach local young adults the basics of sign design and mechanics. A film based on the project will be directed by Joey Garfield and produced by Ghost Robot. The entire enterprise happens this August and is a collaboration between Stephen Powers and The Mural Arts Program and is funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative”
