Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Donkeys Around Town

Donkeys Around Town

In celebration of the Democratic National Convention, 57 decorated Donkeys Around Town are on display at interesting spots throughout and just beyond Center City. Each fiberglass animal, fabricated in nearby Chester, Pennsylvania and decorated by Philadelphia artists affiliated with the Mural Arts Program and, represents one of 50 U.S. states, one of five territories, Washington, D.C. and Democrats abroad. The donkeys furnish great opportunities for home-state selfies.
