Phillip Adams is a local artist who has created several murals on Philadelphia Industrial history. They are located in neighborhoods formerly heavy in industrial production. The mural featured in this article is rich with connections to the Baldwin Park neighborhood.
Adams created this mural as part of his Industrious Light series about Philadelphia’s industrial history. His others art works can be seen in this link. Don’t miss clicking on the Industrious Spirits image further down the page under INDUSTRIOUS LIGHT PROJECTS. It shows a much more spirited image of the mural.
Below is a rich website on the history of the neighborhood bounded by North to Spring Garden Street, South to Vine Street, East to Broad, West to Schuylkill River.
Congratulations to the Friends of Matthias Baldwin Park. The mural will be dedicated November 14th at 6 pm, location: 417 N 20th Street.
