A tunnel once gloomy and decrepit has become a giant mural. After renewing well over 2000-sqft of concrete walls with vibrant colors, the pedestrian tunnel under the Ben Franklin Bridge features one of Philadelphia’s most expansive murals.
The mural depicts scenes from the construction of the bridge, pictures of Philadelphia sights, and pays homages to those who keep it functioning day-to-day. The mural was created in partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia by commissioned artists Brad Carney of Cherry Hill, and Philadelphia artists Melissa Mandel and Mat Tomeszko.
