Voices in Transit

Commissioned by the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, 2010

Using the Mayor’s Strategic Plan for the City of Philadelphia as a point of departure, this project asked high school teenagers from 4 different high schools and University of Pennsylvania students to relate to and reflect on the Mayor’s plan. These two groups represent both sides of a threshold for the voting age of 18, ostensibly the age where one’s views, or votes, are recognized and acknowledged in the public sphere. This mural is located in public transportation concourse underneath City Hall and the Municipal Services Building in Philadelphia.
