Philly Portholes is a project through muraLAB, a partnership between the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and BreadBoard. Philadelphia artists KT Butterfield and Mike Ski's concept focuses on transforming the monolithic shapes under
I-95 into graphic silhouettes while bridging neighborhoods with the waterfront.
Inspired by the nautical history upon which the neighborhoods of Fishtown and Port Richmond were founded… wallpaper patterns accompany a series of "portholes." These porthole graphics are filled with historical photographs from the collections of neighbors in the community through a campaign called "Fill the Holes."
Help us Fill The Holes by submitting your old Photos of Places or People HERE, or in person at either of our convenient Drop Off Points. THANK YOU!
