  2. In what is quickly becoming an annual tradition, we worked with independent artists in Berkeley, CA; Austin, TX; and Brooklyn, NY, to create five posters centered around the theme of Independence.

    Here, Derek McDonald uses classic sign painting - on wood and on the door of a vintage, 1950 pickup truck - to create the art for the Jack Daniel's Independence Day campaign. The door was later removed from the truck and, along with the signboard, photographed to create the artwork for print ads, posters and large-scale outdoor murals.

    The signboard poster reads: "THERE'S THE EASY WAY, THERE'S THE FAST WAY AND THEN THERE'S THE BEST WAY."
    The truck door reads: "MADE IN AMERICA. BECAUSE THAT'S HOW AMERICA WAS MADE."

  5. In 1984 Steve Powers started climbing rooftops in his neighborhood and painting his alias ESPO as a dues paying member of the ICY graffiti club. 25 years later he returned home to Philadelphia in the summer of 2009 to write a love letter across the same rooftops facing the Market-Frankford line. The letter, meant for one, with meaning for all, encompasses 50 walls on a 20 block stretch of market street. Drawing input, inspiration, and work from the community Powers created a letter to and from west Philly. This unprecedented public art project was a collaboration of Powers, The Mural Arts Program, and the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. It required 1200 cans of spray paint, 800 gallons of bucket paint, and the skilled hands of 20 of the finest spray painters in America, who Powers put into the legendary ICY club.

    "A Love Letter For You - Brick Valentines On The Philly Skyline" documents the art and the neighborhood that inspired this ambitious public art project.
