City of Murals is a short documentary that traces the history of the Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia. This film charts the tremendous growth the program has had under the leadership of Jane Golden, its founder and visionary. City of Murals encompasses Ms. Golden's professional and personal journey as she takes a small city funded anti-graffiti program and turns it into one of the most influential public art programs in the world. Jane guides us through her story as a young mural artist who is forced to move back from Los Angeles to her hometown in New Jersey due to an illness. Applying on a whim for the head position of the newly founded Anti Graffiti Network, Jane's persistence lands her the job and the challenge of a lifetime: How do you convince skeptical graffiti artists to turn to Mural Making? City of Murals recounts Jane's first sit down with the most notorious graffiti artists in the city, where she realizes the raw talent that could be harnessed to create civic art and social change. City of Murals incorporates Ms. Golden's story with those of fellow Philadelphians who speak on their impressions of the Murals and how the art has affected their lives and experience of in the city of brotherly love. Incredible art comes from great artists and City of Murals is also tailored with insights from the program's talent. Today there are 3,000 murals in Philadelphia, the City of Murals.
