Site Locations

Art Sphere Inc. uses art to honor neighborhoods by calling attention to their worthy aspects which makes cleaning them fun and motivates community members to maintain these areas as special places.

Several of our ASI Public Art, Cleanup and Mural Projects have been ongoing projects (we have been working at Fishtown Recreation Center and Playground since 2005!) and where you too can join us as we continue to facilitate mural painting, stencil painting, sweeping, raking and picking up trash to make the playground a better place for kids:

When attending a site please bring your completed Release Form and Volunteer Intake Form.

Please bring any special dietary needs; wear old shoes and old clothes – preferably layers as we work in most types of weather outside (there are covered outdoor spaces) or if volunteers prefer and weather is terrible -making cards for seniors and US soldiers or prepping educational materials indoors. Please do not bring any valuables. Check out the maps provided below for your chosen site of interest (John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge has water, soda machines, restrooms for changing and indoor seating areas. Fishtown Recreation Center has many great restaurants nearby.)

Please prepare groups to sign in If volunteers can arrive on time that is preferred for a quick 10 minute orientation. As we get closer to date please let us know how many volunteers to expect. We will do our best to get snack donations.

We ask groups to consider making a donation for each participant (our suggested amount is $25.00 per person, but any amount is appreciated) to help us continue our programming for low-income youth. This donation covers our supplies and outreach activities.

For mural projects, if groups are unable to provide financial support, then please bring one gallon of water-based paint per group of ten volunteers to help maintain ongoing cleanup events. We also welcome art materials such as: colored pencils, markers, glue sticks , construction paper and scissors. We really appreciate whatever you deem appropriate to keep up these programs, welcome your help and are grateful for whatever you are willing to give.
