Mural Arts Philadelphia & Streets Dept Launch Artist-Created Posters Advocating for First 100 Days

Jan 25, 2021 | Mural Arts Philadelphia

Mural Arts Philadelphia, in partnership with curator Conrad Benner, created First 100 Days, a new art project designed to engage the public around policy issues that could be addressed in the new presidential administration. Especially in the current political climate, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have a chance to really make their mark in these first few months. The public can print out or pick up artist-created and community-inspired posters to display in their windows for the first 100 days of the Biden/Harris administration to talk about their policy hopes. For the project, curator Conrad Benner and Mural Arts Philadelphia worked with ten diverse Philadelphia artists to create ten posters which promote various areas of action. The Philadelphia Inquirer ran two full pages with all of the posters and statements from each artist.  

Read more about the project, see the posters, and print them at home for your window here.
