Philadelphia's most innovative and colorful
celebration is back- and this time, we're going

Wall Ball, Mural Arts Philadelphia's annual gala fundraiser, is a fun and interactive event that brings together hundreds of Mural Arts supporters. This year we are transforming this exciting event into a memorable virtual experience. Join us from the comfort of your own home as we commemorate leaders who exemplify positive change. Wall Ball supports our innovative and transformative community outreach programs, reaching participants in every neighborhood in Philadelphia.

Wall Ball 2021 honorees Daniel J. Hilferty and Sandy and Steve Sheller are dedicated to supporting Mural Arts Philadelphia programs that center resilience and healing. Artists and recipients of the Visionary Artist Award are Nilé Livingston and Hank Willis Thomas.

Join us on June 10 to celebrate our honorees and uplift participatory art-making as a pathway for individual and community wellness. We will highlight two distinguished Mural Arts initiatives, the Kensington Storefront and Color Me Back: A Same Day Pay Program, both of which foster unity and empathy among neighbors, and transform public spaces.
