From the city of [brotherly] love, indeed!

I am pretty much in love with this project, A Love Letter For You.

A Love Letter For You was started by Stephen Powers with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and is sponsored by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative.

Basically, people submit their thoughts on love, what love means to them, excerpts from their own love story, etc. Local painters come together and make those words happen on the sides of buildings (which are best viewed while riding the subway in West Philly). This means less ugly and neglected-looking buildings and more positive messages of hope and love.

I really like the concept of this. Something like it needs to happen in Portland. Or on a t-shirt. Or in my real life (future husband, if you’re reading, please propose to me using something like this).

It won’t be Valentine’s Day for a while. Still feeling the love?
