Philadelphia, PA – April 13, 2023 – vybe urgent care, the leading independent operator of urgent care centers in the Greater Philadelphia area, announces a new mural at its location at 5828 Market Street in West Philadelphia. In partnership with Global Philadelphia Association (GPA), the organizations meet one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with the unveiling of this new public art mural by local artist David Guinn.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action set forth by United Nations for all countries – poor, rich, and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go together with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
The Sustainable Goals Campaign in Philadelphia is designed to bring awareness to the importance of the 17 development goals, through a series of public artwork encouraging a broad commitment to their effectuation, both locally and on a global scale.
“Working with Global Philadelphia and the talented artist, David Guinn, we are thrilled to support this mural reflecting Good Health and Wellbeing,” said Peter Hotz, President and CEO of vybe urgent care. “It affirms our commitment to providing kind and compassionate care in this vibrant area of the city.”
The mural at vybe West Philly celebrates SDG #3 – Good Health and Well-Being, and it artistically portrays the importance of good health and healthy lifestyles, which includes everyone’s right to quality healthcare services.
“At Global Philadelphia, we are committed to fostering the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and this collaboration with vybe urgent care is an opportunity to further that commitment,” said Zabeth Teelucksingh, President of Global Philadelphia. “This new mural in West Philadelphia not only adds a beautiful new backdrop for the community but also represents how public art can engage and address larger challenges our city faces, helping to create a better, more sustainable Philadelphia.”FIND YOUR VYBE
