PHILLY’S SOCIETY HILL AND WASHINGTON SQUARE WEST NEIGHBORHOODS

Headlining today’s post … an eye-catching mural by My Dog Sighs

On Sunday, I returned to Philadelphia and spent the day exploring the Society Hill and Washington Square West neighborhoods.

Above the intersection of South Street and S Sixth Street is this eye-catching mural the British artist My Dog Sighs created the latter part of September with support from HAHAxParadigm and the South Street Headhouse District.

This delightful dormouse graces the alley entrance to the Mostly Book bookstore. It’s a collaborative piece by Bear_2.1.5 and Evan Lovett. The mural reminds me of the wonderful illustrations Graham Oakley created for his children’s book series The Church Mice.

Yea, the sky is falling

Artists find the area’s numerous metal electric utility boxes an irresistible temptation.
