About this event

ABC’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series, Abbott Elementary, from Warner Bros. Television and 20th Television, will shine a light on Mural Arts Philadelphia (Mural Arts) with its upcoming new episode titled “Mural Arts,” airing Wednesday, March 1 at 9/8c on ABC.

Mural Arts, the nation’s largest public art program, has helped Philadelphia reach international recognition as “Mural Capital of the World” and for nearly 40 years has worked in middle schools and high schools throughout the School District of Philadelphia to inspire student creativity through art and mural making experiences. The inclusion of mural-making in the upcoming Abbott Elementary episode offers a glimpse into Mural Arts’ student-focused programs. Also, it showcases Philadelphia’s robust arts and culture scene, where so many schools throughout the City of Philadelphia feature murals on their building walls.

In “Mural Arts,” Jacob Hill, played by actor Chris Perfetti secures a visit from a mural arts program for his students but disagrees with their chosen design and attempts to influence their decision. In addition to the mural-making plot, Barbara Howard, played by Philadelphia’s own actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Melissa Schemmenti, played by actress Lisa Ann Walter, learn parents are petitioning to turn Abbott into a Legendary charter school.
