Philly’s Litter Critters

A few years ago, Philly was the premier city to roll out 500 high-tech Big Belly trash compactors. Today, these treasured rubbish receptacles have been affectionately transformed into works of art known as “litter critters” within the South Street district between 2nd and 10th street.

The wonderfully inspiring Mural Arts Program is behind the initiative as part of their Big Picture Educational program, which was created to encourage social responsibility in youth ages 10-14. The students in Big Picture produced the drawings and Ben Woodward & Tom Lessner of Space 1026 helped to design as wraps.

¡Muchísimas Gracias a Chris Gatto!
