A Love Letter for You

Graffiti artist Steven Powers with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program has created a series of more than 30 text based murals entitled "Love Letter ".  Painted on the sides of buildings following the route of the Market -Frankford Elevated Line, the entire series can be seen for the price of one subway token.  Steven, a West Philadelphia native, chose this neighborhood and this route because he  wanted to bring messages of hope into a neighborhood where hope and positive thought is not the most common influence.
