125th Anniversary Mural Site and Design

The mural is planned to adorn the Philadelphia District Health Center at 4400 Haverford Avenue and will be painted by Walinsky with the help of Bryn Mawr students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumnae/i. Joining the Bryn Mawr community on the project will be members of the surrounding community, including students from nearby Parkway West High School, where Bryn Mawr students serve as classroom assistants to teachers, tutor and mentor individual students, and engage in community-based research projects.

This is what the site currently looks like.

"I am . . . much aware of the world's dilemma. People's effect on other people results, it seems to me, in an enforced sense of responsibility— a compulsory obligation to participate in others' problems."

Marianne Moore, class of 1909, Pulitzer Prize-winning Poet »
