This Sunday, February 16, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts presents a discussion in conjunction with its current marquee exhibition, Beyond the Paint: Philadelphia’s Mural Arts.
From 2 to 3 p.m., listen to Shari Hersh, the founder of Mural Arts’ Restored Spaces program discuss the program’s initiatives.
Restored Spaces is an environmental project that was developed in 2008 to promote sustainability through public artwork — outdoor classrooms, an amphitheater of upcycled materials, murals, gardens, mosaics and more — throughout Philadelphia.
Also, hear from local artists who have created installations that promote sustainability as part of the Restored Spaces program.
Best of all, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is free every Sunday through April 16, so there’s no need to pay admission for full access to the discussion.
After the discussion, be sure to explore the history of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts program through PAFA’s marquee exhibition, Beyond the Paint: Philadelphia’s Mural Arts.
