What a goal! The student participants of ArtWorks Kensington wish to congratulate the locally minded small business by creating murals influenced by their presence in the community.


Artworks Kensington, the collaboration between NKCDC and PAC, is leading a student driven mural project to be displayed in the newly renovated lobby of PRSB. Students of the After School Arts Program designed 4 unique '100 dollar bills' using symbols and designs that represent the identity of Philadelphia.
