City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program

The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program was honored to work with one of the nation’s cultural treasures: poet, activist, and educator Sonia Sanchez. The project—Peace is a Haiku Song—engages the Philadelphia community and beyond in an exploration of the haiku as a vehicle for peace and urban transformation.

This exciting project culminated in a mural honoring Sanchez as a celebrated practitioner and teacher of the haiku. The mural is inspired by Sanchez’s belief that the haiku form is inherently non-violent in its intent and structure and engenders beauty, serenity, and brief reflection.
