“The North Philadelphia Beacon Project,” Mural Arts Philadelphia

“The North Philadelphia Beacon Project,” installed and created at Broad and Lehigh, sits in the heart of North Philadelphia. Created as part of the three year Porch Light Initiative in collaboration with Sobriety Through Out-Patient (S.T.O.P.) and Mural Arts Philadelphia, the mural represents the workof hundreds of community members, S.T.O.P. staff, service recipients, volunteers and artist James Burns. The word “rise” is the painting’s focal point, reminding the community that each day has value and each individual has a voice and power.
