Philly Valentine :: Steve Powers Completes Year Long Love Letter

(All Images via A Love Letter for You)

Steve Powers celebrates the completion of his ambitious Philadelphia-based Love Letter project with a series of weekend-long events. On Friday, Feb. 12, a special exhibit documenting the year long planning and creation of the multi-site public mural project will open, followed by a book signing on Saturday at Exit Skateshop. But the real treat will go down on Valentine’s Day, when Powers himself hops aboard a privately chartered elevated SEPTA El train to MC (“working on my train announcer chops,” he hints) a special Love Train Tour of the 50 rooftop murals that comprise the installation. The tour will be followed by a reception at SEPTA’s Grand Mezzanine. Space is limited for this event and tickets are required.

More info on Love Letter here and here and check these images of some of the final touches on the project.
