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.
Free Art Classes
We offer many varieties of art classes, from painting, drawing, sewing, weaving to how to use a Cricut machine or design for a laser cutter.
Open Studio Sessions
Bring a project or start a project! We are open 30+ hours per week for you to come and work in the company of our supportive community and staff.
Saturday Kids Club
Our popular Saturday Kids Club sessions happen three weeks per month with a new project every week with a special one hour Toddlers session. Sign up on Eventbrite!
The TaconyLAB has hosted a number of resident artists in our space and in partnership with other organizations such as Riverfront North Partnership.
