  1. Sharing the Mural Arts Experience
    AGTS members from many chapters across the Delaware Valley came together to learn about and participate in the process of painting a mural envisioned by Felix St. Fort which will be installed at the Drake Theater (308 Hicks St.) in Philadelphia.
  2. Touring the Mural Arts Experience
    Members were invited to join guided walking tours of several art installations in the area surrounding the Convention Center and City Hall. Guides shared about the artists and their pieces, offered historical insights into some of the city's architecture, and added in some fun facts and lore about our city.
