The first of two Artistic Rebuttal murals in collaboration with the Mural Arts Program, has been approved and is ready to paint!
We invite you to help paint and celebrate the life of
Francis Hopkinson, Christ Church's Artist and Renaissance Man,
in pure mural form, this
Sunday, June 30th, from 12noon to 5pm
in the Great Hall of the Neighborhood House,
20 N. American Street, Philadelphia.
No painting skills necessary, open to all ages!
And if you can't make it out to paint, or just don't like getting messy :), no worries, you can visit the mural later in the week! The mural is scheduled to be installed on the north-west exterior corner of the Neighborhood House on July 3rd.
I created the mural with the help of students at the Philadelphia
Center for Arts and Technology to commemorate the many professions and
interests of Francis Hopkinson.
In doing so, I also seek to celebrate two things: the multi-faceted lives of all artists who, out of pure curiosity and sometimes necessity, are driven to master many trades; and the excitement of artistic feats that the Neighborhood House Rentals program has contributed to everything else Christ Church has to offer.

Thank you all for your continued support.
We hope to see you on Sunday!
