October is Mural Arts Month in the City of Brotherly Love and this year, Mural Arts Philadelphia has partnered with ridesharing company Lyft to do something special.
On Thursday, Oct. 11, four flatbed trucks featuring eight different murals will tour the city streets, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The trucks will stop outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art around 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., to give Philadelphians the opportunity to take pictures with the mobile murals.
In addition, Lyft is encouraging passengers to visit Philadelphia's art scene this October by offering a special promo code.
Use "ARTPHL" to score a 25-percent discount – Mondays through Fridays from 5 p.m. to midnight – on a ride to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Prince Theater, Design Philadelphia's festival gallery at Bok or the Center for Architecture & Design.
There will be four mural-wrapped Lyft vehicles out and about this month, too. One might pick you up on your way to the art museum on Oct. 11.
Both murals will also be featured on the flatbed trucks. All eight mobil murals are listed below, as well as who created them and where they're actually located in the city.
