Mural Arts Philadelphia’s citywide Monument Lab continues with a Saturday Spotlight event at Vernon Park, with music and food.
This event will feature Monument Lab artists Jamel Shabazz—holding portrait sessions for his project paying tribute to African American veterans—and Karyn Olivier—currently installing The Battle is Joined, a mirrored remixing of the Battle of Germantown Memorial.
Reflect on history. Imagine the future. Change the present.

Major support for Monument Lab projects staged in Philadelphia’s five squares has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
An expanded artist roster and projects at five neighborhood sites have been made possible by a significant grant from the William Penn Foundation
