In conjunction with the Center-supported project, Radio Silence, Mural Arts Philadelphia presents a weekly radio broadcast hosted by artist Michael Rakowitz. Airing April 15–May 27 on WPPM PhillyCAM radio, the seven-part broadcast combines recorded elements from the summer 2017 performance with studio and field recordings, accompanied by original poetry and songs. Exploring themes such as secrets, dead air, and peace, the episodes are available for streaming and download on the Radio Silence website and as a podcast on iTunes.
