The Tacony LAB Community Art Center located in Northeast Philadelphia is a program of Mural Arts Philadelphia in partnership with City Councilmember Mike Driscoll.

Created in 2017 by Mural Arts Philadelphia with the support of former Councilman Bobby Henon, the Tacony LAB Community Arts Center brings the neighborhood and the arts together to create a unique hub for learning, creativity, and community engagement in Northeast Philadelphia. The Tacony LAB runs an artist-in-residence program, offers art classes for adults and youth, holds open studio sessions for the public in our well-equipped studio/maker space, and presents arts-focused events free of charge. The Tacony LAB is wheelchair accessible.


Art is for Everyone!


Mural Arts Philadelphia exists to provide transformative experiences,
progressive discourse, and economic stimulus to the City of
Philadelphia through participatory public art that beautifies,
advocacy that inspires, and educational programming and
employment opportunities that empower.
