The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program are collaborating with Philadelphia native and New York based artist Stephen Powers to create Love Letter, a public art project consisting of a series of 50 rooftop murals from 45th to 63rd Streets along the Market Street corridor.

The murals, which are best viewed from the Market-Frankford elevated transit line, collectively express a love letter from a guy to a girl, from an artist to his hometown, and from local residents to their neighborhood of West Philadelphia. Love Letter, which will be documented in two books, a film, and a gallery exhibition, speaks to all those who have loved and for those who long for a way to express that love to the world around them.

Special thanks to Mary Conway of the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.
