You Can See Clearly Now


Any way you look at it, the main mural is a sight to behold. When you come to the Passing Through dedication on Friday October 29 at 4:00 pm on Kelly Drive, be sure to walk the path by the natural stone tunnel for this made-to-order view of the third third of the mural. We can't promise the pink sky, but you just don't know.

this is not design invasion's website. however, for those who really want your house redone, i would be able to graffiti all over it for you in a post-modern/surrealist kind of way. i would really like to be able to share a crack alley experience with you and be able to spread a graffiti/crackart motif across suburban america.

Yes, Question Man, you are correct. In 1982, The Rosenbach Museum at 20th and Delancey in Philadelphia published Passing Through: Letters and Documents Written in Philadelphia by Famous visitors, compiled and described by Clive E. Driver. The cover art for the book is an antique engraving of the Girard Avenue Bridge, exactly where the main Passing Through mural now appears. I came across the book just days ago in my parents' home, completely by happenstance.
