Plastered majestically on the wall of a parking lot, smack dab in the middle of Philadelphia’s famous Italian Market, is Frank Rizzo. The former mayor and fixture was rendered in 1995 by respected artist and educator Diane Keller and seems to float above his stronghold with hunger in his eyes. A popular place for speeches and purposeful gatherings, rumor has it of a sentry who will brush up the mural anytime some enterprising tagger gives it a bit of the odd spray can. Don’t even think about it.
