About

A project of the York Time Bank, the Penn Street Art Bridge is a new public art space on the bridge connecting the 200 block of North Penn Street with Gay Avenue.

Similar to self-organizing “Graffiti Alley” art spaces in Baltimore, Toronto, San Francisco and other cultural hubs, the York Time Bank established the Penn Street Art Bridge.

The art bridge transformed an ongoing offensive vandalism issue into an uplifting community asset by cultivating a space where budding street artists are able to develop and display their craft in a legal, more positive and artistically-rigorous environment.

Established artists from around the country are free to work on larger, ambitious pieces without fear of arrest, which draws more talent to the area, helping drive further innovative creative initiatives.
