Boy with Raised Arm

Artist: Sidney Goodman

Wall mural: Grid system

Location: Philadelphia PA - 40th Street & Powelton Avenue. Completed in 1992.

This mural is based on a painting by the artist which is now in the collection of the Franklin Mint. It incorporates a quote by Walt Whitman: "I am large, I contain Multitudes."

The photograph was taken as a building was under construction. Although the new building blocks the view of the mural, it houses a center providing services to the homless.
