Dark is a Way and Light is a Place


Dark is a Way and Light is a Place is a mural by Alison Dilworth about holding darkness and light all at once. The work combines symbolism and mythology in a visual narrative and exists in two parts: the interior mural in the lobby of the NC5, and the exterior mural on the wall leading to the Temple University train station. Inspired by Indigenous and biblical creation stories, Greek Mythology, personal narrative, and medicinal plants, the work speaks to the interconnectedness of shadow and illumination, brokenness and healing, fear and love.
