Y PHILLY / Y TURKEY - Youth Identity Murals - Each year, MYX invites all Philadelphians between the ages of 9 – 24 (Philadelphia's Youth Generation) to capture the spirit of their city and youth culture in two youth identity murals. Once completed, the murals are presented to a pre-selected community abroad as a gift from our city.
This year, for the first time, MYX, in partnership with the Middle East Center and Arts for Anyone facilitated a full exchange of murals, creating the Y PHILLY murals for schools in Istanbul and Adana, Turkey, where Turkish students simultaneously created their own youth identity murals for Philadelphia.
Come out and see these murals together for the last time before the Philadelphia murals are presented to their permanent homes in Turkey. Join us for a reception on Wednesday, September 26, 5-8 PM at International House (3701 Chestnut St.).
