Have you heard about the Love Letter Mural Project? Love Letter is a project by West Philadelphian native muralist Stephen Powers in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.
What is this Love Letter Train Tour?
Philadelphia’s official Love Letter Train Tour, leads visitors on an urban adventure on SEPTA’s Market/Frankford evaluated train line to view 50 rooftop murals along the Market Street corridor. The project collectively express a love letter from a guy to a girl, from an artist to his hometown, and from local residents to their cherished neighborhood.
Mural Arts guides will provide riders with detailed stories about the murals and lead guests oft the train to platforms to view murals closer.
Train riders will witness Mayor Nutter marrying a couple followed by a champagne and chocolate reception. You will also be treated to a private screening of the Love Letter documentary at SEPTA headquarters.
Rides are being offered on Saturdays and Sundays throughout February. To find out more and purchase tickets, please visit the Mural Arts Program site.
