GATEWAY: A Documentary on “How Philly Moves”


GATEWAY production starts Fall 2010.


Big Picture Productions is pleased to announce the start of a history-making documentary project that will follow the making of How Philly Moves, J. J. Tiziou’s dance-photography-inspired mural arts project in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

How Philly Moves is an extraordinary new work of community-based public art that celebrates diversity, community and the joy of dance—coming to the Philadelphia International Airport in June 2011. This vibrant new work of community-based public art will span the parking decks facing Interstate 95 at the Philadelphia International Airport — nearly 50,000 square feet- the size of four football fields combined. The project will employ 35 artists and individuals in various Mural Arts Program workforce development and re-entry initiatives.

How Philly Moves will instill a sense of collaboration, hope, and beauty to the city of Philadelphia; GATEWAY will bring this incredible act of civic engagement and celebration to the world.
