Open Source

Okay, this is amazing – for the month of October, the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is putting on this amazing interactive and public art show called Open Source. The idea is to make the city into a canvas and to bring together 14 amazing artists (5 from Philadelphia, the rest from around the world) to conduct massive public artworks from murals to statuary. It’s all about interaction with the people of Philadelphia and making art not something just to behold, but something with which to connect. The artists will address issues such as immigration, racism, recycling, and the environment in order to bring dialogue into a public and beautiful forum. It’s the intersection between art and social issues, an expression of the problems facing Philadelphians and a universally accessible way to discuss them.
