Boy with Raised Arm
Wall mural: Grid system
Location: Philadelphia PA - 40th
Street & Powelton Avenue.
Completed in 1992.
This mural is based on a painting by the artist which is now in the
collection of the Franklin Mint. It incorporates a quote by Walt
Whitman: "I am large,
I contain Multitudes."
The photograph was taken as a building was under construction. Although
the new building blocks the view of the mural, it houses a center providing
to the homless.
