Lil Sean is
probably the most beloved 12 year old in Philadelphia.
unofficial mayor of the Eraserhood and now even has his own mural to prove it.
The mural, prominently displayed on the exterior of PhilaMOCA at Ridge Avenue and Spring Garden, was only one part of the festivities for Lil Sean Day, which also included the premier of his film and a selection of his favorite local bands.
So how exactly does a 12 year old go about getting themselves their own day?
Sean has been a fixture in the neighborhood for years – he can usually be found hanging out around PhilaMOCA, saying hello to passersby, and doling out fist bumps and signature handshakes to his many friends. I remember when I was finally cool enough to get a fist bump from Sean – it felt like I had earned my citizenship to the neighborhood.
Bigups to PhilaMOCA for continually providing unique and quality programming, and putting on such a solid day.
While you’re waiting around for the 2nd annual Lil Sean Day, be sure to go check out the amazing mural done by artist Karli Cox (who also plays Sean’s love interest in his film – WE SEE YOU, SEAN).
