“You’re Here And You Matter,” Mural Arts Philadelphia

In the Callowhill neighborhood, artist NDA’s mural, “You’re Here And You Matter,” honorslocal changemaker Laureal Robinson, the principal of Spring Garden School, for the positive change she’s made in the community, which include planting trees and providing more afterschool programs. Robinson’s efforts have raised the school’s achievement ranking. The mural, funded by Mural Arts Philadelphia, is part of a larger series of silhouettes from NDA, each shining a light on an everyday hero.
