This summer, visitors to Philadelphia’s Historic District should get ready to be part of a revolution.

From May 25 through July 4, Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition will showcase free public artwork at 13 locations exploring revolutionary themes.

Presented by VISIT PHILADELPHIA, the exhibit features a curated selection of street artists chosen by Conrad Benner, the founder and editor of street art photo-blog streetsdept.com.

Each exhibiting artist was tasked with creating or presenting a work of art that showcases his or her own interpretation of “revolution” and how that concept might challenge the social and political status quo.
