US-ART-CULTURE-MURALS

A giant portrait of basketball legend Julius 'Dr. J' Erving overlooks an abandonned plot in Philadelphia 30 April , 2013. Philadelphia counts some 3,800 murals across the city, from historic downtown to poor neighborhoods in the suburbs. The trend started with the 'Mural Arts Program' launched in 1984 in an effort to combat graffiti. The program was intended to channel the energy of young artists and involve them in creating oversized paintings. Some thirty years later, artists from all walks of life compete to be part of a group of about 200 that will participate in the annual program.
