Discover Philadelphia’s Street Art
with Conrad Benner.
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 • 2:00 PM
Conrad created the website www.streetsdept.org which documents and celebrates street art and muralism across the city’s public spaces. The Philadelphia Inquirer says “He has helped bring national respect to a Philadelphia art scene that deserves it.” Conrad, with the help of local artists, has also been instrumental in campaigns to increase voter turnout and to raise awareness and money to end youth homelessness in Philadelphia.
He was the curator and organizer of Revolutionary: A Pop-Up Street Art Exhibition, commissioned by Visit Philadelphia in 2017. The artists’ work depicted challenges to the current political and social status quo and was installed at 13 locations across Philadelphia’s historic district. Streetsdept.com also offers podcasts, such as a recent interview with the Director of Tyler School of Art’s Department of Exhibitions and Public Programs.
