Amidst all the street vendors, urban cowboys and busy streets that crowd 52nd street, Walnut Hill also has something very few other neighborhoods in Philadelphia have. While most neighborhoods have beautifully painted murals depicting various people, history and stages of life, Walnut Hill boats love letters. As part of the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, local artist Steven Powers (who also owns Shop Signs, located on 46th and Market Street) created the “Love Letter” mural series. The series, a collection of over 30 murals placed throughout West Philadelphia, expresses various forms of love through art. Some of our favorites include: “Hold Tight” (pictured above) and a Michael Jackson tribute in the form of “ABC” lettering.
