A video made by the University of the Sciences who supported and partnered with The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and Warrior Writers to dedicate a new mural “Communion between a rock and a hard place” on Nov. 12, 2012. The mural was the result of the “Our City, Our Vets” program created to bring veterans, many of whom struggle in silence, into a conversation with fellow community members to share their stories and build a better network for troops returning home. Designed by Phillip Adams and Willis Humphrey, the mural is actually two facing murals depicting a scene from Clark Park in Philadelphia and Iraq and Afghanistan. The site, situated on Woodland Ave. among USciences and community buildings, was selected because of its proximity to the VA hospital and multiple universities, and the unique physical layout of the site. The design incorporates photographs and writing accumulated during the workshops, and mimics the technique of photographic transfers for the overall aesthetic. It is meant to give the viewer the sense of being between two worlds, worlds that are separate, but apart. Veterans can never fully leave either of these two worlds. Funding was provided by the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services and the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development.
