Join us for the Getting to the Green: Routes to Roots in partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia, April 5 – April 19 at Cherry Street Pier.

Don’t miss the opening on Friday, April 5 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

This month-long exhibition celebrates the Getting to Green project, showcasing artistic and multimedia creations generated over two (2) years.

Held at Cherry Street Pier for one month, the showcase includes artwork, videos, resources, and materials. Various opportunities for audience engagement will occur throughout the exhibition period.

Getting to Green: Routes to Roots is a multidisciplinary public art project in Philadelphia that encourages residents to explore the city’s green spaces through public transit. Led by artists Shira Walinsky and Laura Deutch, the initiative forges connections between urban dwellers and the city’s natural areas, promoting the discovery and rediscovery of these spaces. Deutch’s videos feature interviews with riders discussing travel and transit routes to green spaces, while Walinsky’s unique visual artworks, such as a bus wrap, bus posters, and hand-drawn printed maps, are used to inspire and activate riders.
