A project of the York Time Bank, the Penn Street Art Bridge is a new public art space forming this spring on the bridge connecting North and South Penn Streets and Gay Avenue.

Similar to self-organizing “Graffiti Alley” art spaces in Baltimore, Toronto, San Francisco and other cultural hubs, the York Time Bank is establishing the Penn Street Art Bridge to transform an ongoing offensive graffiti issue into a community asset by cultivating a space where budding urban artists are able to develop and display their craft in a legal, more positive and artistically-rigorous environment.
