What's 33,000 square feet and full of color in the middle of Philadelphia this summer? A new mural, painted on the pavement of Eakins Oval on the Ben Franklin Parkway! Created by Brad Carney, '02, this mural is on view till the middle of August. Brad created this mural for the Mural Arts Project and it serves as the backdrop for a number of events held in Eakin's Oval this month. Brad based the mural on both his love of music and art.  Inspired by both high-school art and music teachers, he designed a mural that brings together his two creative loves. He says "You can draw attention with different rhythms happening at the same time – you can do all kinds of fun things with that! Music can be visual, can make you feel things, and it’s the same thing with color, painting, and line work. It’s composition, it’s focal point, it’s highs and lows, it’s contrast." Read More
