Young Heroes Outreach Begins Action Phase

NLM’s year-long Young Heroes Outreach Program, which takes the Museum’s lessons on civic leadership directly into schools, is now entering the phase when the students choose a social issue that matters to them and plan Action Steps to address that issue. Students in the seventeen schools NLM currently serves have been brainstorming and researching issues for the past several weeks. Their breadth of knowledge and commitment is truly impressive. The students have been considering  a wide range of topics from bullying to gerrymandering. The following seven schools have made their decisions. A formal presentation of each school’s social issue will take place at our annual Young Heroes Impact Celebration on June 2 at Girard College. Watch for event information on this website.

Why do Philadelphians love the LOVE sculpture so damn much?

Arthur, a staffer at Pennsylvania Hospital, echoed the same sentiment. “I work at Eighth and Spruce,” he said, “so that’s a long walk. When I heard it was back, I just had to see it.”

    Why do Philadelphians love the LOVE sculpture so damn much?
    When the LOVE sculpture returned to LOVE Park last week after a year's absence, Philly treated it like a Very Big Deal. The city's Office of Arts and Culture staged a mini parade to welcome it home, hundreds of fans swarmed the plaza at 16th and JFK to pose for pics with the iconic artwork, and thousands more paid tribute to the sculpture with homages and remembrances on social media.
