That may have been the last relevant piece of public art in Philadelphia.

Now a fucking parking lot. This is was something that really mattered.

Of course it is a parking lot. Everyone knows that you can't make money in Philadelphia by promoting artists.
The reason you no longer see anything like this anymore in Philadelphia is that it does not conform to the Soviet Realism of the Mural Arts Project.
