Streets Dept Magazine, Issue #2 (2023)
For the last 12 years, the StreetsDept.com blog has been celebrating art on the streets of Philadelphia. With our now annual magazine, we're offering curated time capsules of Philly's street/public art world.
In this second issue of the Streets Dept Magazine, we have brand-new interviews with three incredible local artists who've all had big years and leaps in their art careers: irregular, TAME, and Lace In The Moon!
We also have three original articles:
1. Our letter from the editor, "A Word From Streets Dept"
2. "It's Time To Rethink Mural Ownership," exploring the unfortunate trend of mural loss in Philly and ways that we can address it
3. And "We're All Rooting For South Street," thinking about the future of one of Philly's best creative districts
The one thing our magazine doesn't have: ads. And that's because this magazine is created with the support of our brilliant Streets Dept Patreon members and you with your purchase.
The Streets Dept Magazine is written and created by Conrad Benner and Eric Dale. It is 24 pages in total (no ads!) And we ship the magazine in a stiff cardboard envelope to prevent bending and damage during shipping. We love creating this magazine and sincerely thank you for your purchase!
