phillypublicart The yarnbombs on E. Passyunk have been multiplying, for which I believe we have @ishknits to thank. Check out her blog (link in her profile), where she interviews other yarnbombers and offers a window into the how and why behind this wonderful art form. 8h

pennmuseum Happy birthday to one of the founders of the Penn Museum, Dr. William Pepper, born this day 171 years ago. Dr. Pepper was educated at @uofpenn and served there as provost from 1881-1894; he helped establish the Penn Museum to house the artifacts acquired during the university's archaeological digs abroad. You'll find this bronze statue of Pepper in the Perelman Quadrangle, just a hop and a skip away from the Museum. 16h

phillypublicart If I could be a deli in South Philly, I'd probably want to be J.B.'s Deli at Croskey and Wolf—for a few reasons. One of them is this @joeboruchow piece by the entrance. 4d

Lo-fi Public Art in Philadelphia
phillypublicart Headed back down Frankford and soon enough I found it. "Lotus Diamond" is a new @muralarts project by Shepard Fairey (@obeygiant) on Frankford between Thompson and Girard. I was happy to find it. Snapped some photos, enjoyed the moment, and headed home. It was worth the trip. 6d

phillypublicart I cut left again at Norris and ran back toward Frankford—another lucky turn, as I discovered this cool sidewalk mosaic just a few steps before I turned south again. 6d

Normal Public Art in Philadelphia
phillypublicart I turned left on Front Street and headed back south. This was a smart move, I realized, as I ran awestruck through a whole strip covered in more of Betsy Casañas's @muralarts work, starting at Westmoreland and continuing to Allegheny. 1w
