The Mural Arts Program (MAP) knows how much people love the 1987 Keith Haring mural We the Youth at 22nd & Ellsworth. That’s why the city arts organization issued a reassuring heads up on its Facebook page before the beginning of a six- to eight-week restoration, during which there will be scaffolding and workers and other oft-suspicious signs of doom.
In concert with the mural’s restoration, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is renovating the adjacent garden space. Together, these improvements will transform the space into a vibrant, inviting environment for the neighborhood to enjoy. Both projects are sponsored by the Keith Haring Foundation.
