About the Art Bridge

The Penn Street Art Bridge is a a community-owned, self-organizing public art space where anyone is welcome to paint, and everyone is encouraged to take and share photos.

The art bridge was established in 2017 by the York Time Bank, transforming a “vandalism issue” into a self-regenerating community asset.

Similar to Graffiti Alleys in Baltimore, Toronto, San Francisco and other cultural hubs, the Penn Street Art Bridge is constantly changing as new artwork is put up by local and visiting artists.

The art bridge is a footbridge connecting the 200 block of North Penn Street with Gay Avenue, right off Roosevelt Avenue between Philadelphia and Rt 30.
