Brush With the Law uses the visual arts in community-based beautification projects throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Projects are led by professional artists who create together with college students, socially marginalized populations (such as the homeless, incarcerated, probation, those in recovery or struggling with addiction), people assigned community service hours and volunteers from the community/neighborhoods we work in to create public art.

that by working on creative projects that serve the community, marginalized individuals and community members start to understand and recognize one another as human beings.
ART PROJECTS create a collaborative and inclusive environment that bring people together to overcome challenges, provide a creative outlet for participants and offer the community an opportunity to experience working with diversified and varying populations.
