When it comes to art, Philadephia likes to show off.

The city is home to more public art displays than any other city in the world outside of Paris, and during this three-hour tour, you'll have the chance to see Philly's public displays for yourself!

You'll set off along the intersection of Broad and Market Streets, which was the original center of the grid of Philadelphia. From there, you may make your way to Robert Indiana's LOVE sculpture or to check out some displays of the Mural Arts Program, which has generated over 3,000 locally-produced art pieces on buildings across the city.

After that, you'll experience a whirlwind of public art as you view Claes Oldernburg's "Clothespin", the Swann Memorial Fountain, the Philadelphia Museum of Art with its Rocky statue, carvings by William Rush at the Fairmount Waterworks, and more.

Throughout it all, you'll enjoy the insights and commentary of an art historian -- ensuring that when you tell your friends about your tour, you'll sound super smart!
