No experience required, all supplies provided, fun had by all! Join photographer and designer JJ Tiziou, lead muralist Jon Laidacker and the mural team at a community paint day to help paint the How Philly Moves mural that will be installed at the Philadelphia International Airport this spring.

What: Community paint day: you are invited!

When: Sunday, 12/12/2010, 12pm – 3pm

Where: The Gallery at Market East (9th & Market) – top floor
(more info about the studio)

Help make this day even more successful as the first community paint day was.

About How Philly Moves: The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program has selected How Philly Moves as part of its new gateways initiative. This extraordinary new work of community-based public art will culminate in a dynamic and iconic new ‘postcard’ image for Philadelphia: a nearly 50,000-square-foot mural across the facade of the Philadelphia International Airport’s parking garage installing in spring 2011.
