On July 26th, the Tacony CDC and Mural Arts celebrated the installation of new light pole banners along Torresdale Avenue with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Tacony LAB Resident Artist Mat Tomezsko worked with community members to brighten the commercial corridor with designs inspired by Taconyâ€™s history, such as the Tacony Palmyra Bridge and the grates on the historic Free Library branch building. Tomezsko held workshops with participants of all ages, who experimented with stencils and Taconyâ€™s bright color palette to create 40 distinct banners. These colorful banners celebrate the distinct history and character of the Tacony neighborhood.
