A Love Letter To You

ESPO just doesn’t stop. Near deity-like artist Steven Powers has another great project he’s started called A Love Letter For You. This time he’s taking along local and international artists to tag the sides of 50 walls between 63rd and 45th street on Market street. There’s going to be a documentary film along with two books documenting the process. He’s also going to provide training for youth and creating free signange for local businesses.

I think this is so rad, because not only is he getting to write on these buildings, but in essence he’s trying to gentrify a huge area through art. This is something I’ve though of doing before but obviously not to the epic extent of what Steve is doing. I can’t wait to see this documentary and grab the book.

    I love that murals (especially these) make us smile unexpectedly
    when we first notice them. And the next time we pass, or the next
    hundred times, we look for them, and we still smile like goobers.

    Good for Philly.
