New Mural on the Way in Mt. Airy
Want to weigh in on the neighborhood's newest mural?
If you want to provide input on Mt. Airy’s newest mural, your chance is coming Wednesday.
According to a release from the city’s Mural Arts Program, there will be a community meeting to review the preliminary design for the proposed West Mt. Pleasant Train Trestle Mural on Wednesday, February 20th, 5:30pm at the Goat Hollow Restaurant, 300 W. Mt. Pleasant Avenue.
“This meeting is an outlet for anyone in the neighborhood to voice questions, comments, or concerns regarding the design and any other aspect of the mural,” representative Steven Urgo said in a release. “A large public art project such as this mural impacts the entire neighborhood, and we want to ensure that all residents have an opportunity to provide their input before the mural is created.”
According to a statement, the mural will be located on the train trestle over West Mt. Pleasant Avenue near Lincoln Drive.
The mural will be designed and painted by accomplished mural artist Jon Laidacker, who recently completed the second largest mural in the world on the side of the Philadelphia Airport parking garage.
Jon already has several murals in NW Philly, including the Doo Wop mural on the side of Trolley Car Diner.
The meeting is scheduled for Feb 20, 5:30 p.m. at Goat Hollow restaurant
