Location of the mural – Ellen Fishman-Johnson
After being given the go ahead by Mural Arts to begin working on the project, we needed to find a wall to project on to. We knew we had to find a wall that was in the vicinity of the Philadelphia Convention Center and Frank Aloise, the Director of Finance at Springside School suggested we go look (of course it had to happen during lunch so we could eat at the Reading Terminal Market). We parked right next to the Convention Center and the great wall of the Fabric Workshop and Museum at 12th and Arch immediately struck us both. This is a street that is used by conventioneers to get to most major hotels. There is parking lot beside the wall, which was really important in order to have enough space to project from. We began discussions with Fabric Workshop about using this perfect location.
