On Reality Talks, we speak with working artists and arts professionals on navigating the art world. Through introspective conversation, our guests provide knowledge on the market, public projects and the artistic process. For our opening episode we had the pleasure of interviewing Jane Golden, the Executive Director of The Mural Arts Program of Philadelphia. We talked about her start with Mural Arts, how murals have shaped civic responsibility and the challenges that she faces being an Arts Executive.

Guest: Jane Golden, Executive Director, has been the driving force of Mural Arts Philadelphia (Mural Arts), overseeing its growth from a small city agency into the nation’s largest public art program and a model for community development and restorative justice across the country and around the globe. Under Golden’s direction, Mural Arts has created over 4,000 works of public art through innovative collaborations with community-based organizations, city agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools, the private sector, and philanthropies.
