The Embeddedness of Community Cultural Institutions: Wall Art in Social Context (1994)

SIAP began during the summer of 1994. Thanks to a grant from the dean of the Penn School of Social Work, we were able to organize a research team of graduate and undergraduate students. The students focused on reviewing the literature on social impact and conducting fieldwork at several mural sites in Philadelphia neighborhoods. The resulting working paper explored the value that community members attached to the murals.
