He is located here in City Hall. And want to bring in. The CEO of art John this hearing uncle and she is the one who's. Who works so hard to get all of these donkeys. And this project going up first gonna say for those of you who aren't from Philly I did. Giant is okay and where are again being harmed. Planes. That's the name came from. You. Pay very start and but let's get back to the dikes that wanna give a little closer look at him here. Turn the camera. And and her son talent tell us. Like these don't get me out. And a little bit longer on the mountain out. I think he. Is here the. Together and I wrote that he hurt me out of my heart I'm. And we have attempted to steal scenes here at 38 steals and they're not going anywhere. And you don't need a donkey not as great dog he's admitting. And of the once I we have his eighteen and is in the bank and on others Max and partner. That this means it's not eat meat and local art and all our concern and an honest I hit record he has displayed. Martin Luther King Jr. went into free at last eats we have Jimmy Carter Aaron. The 39 president we have this deep flatware. And then and his fourteenth calling down here on the lives of the donkey. The needs of the donkey. I'm represents. And have element from from the name yeah exactly lit actually bigger maybe got next donkey. Is that Ford donkeys on the little young or and that while we walked the next one and I said there's 57 of them it represented. That number represents the fifty states plus DC plus. That territories. Plus Democrats and we're on so there's an eighth and it really interesting process for our artists that. You know I would think that the typical American does not know what does that an exit here today under an incident lot of questions regarding YPD that it. And that was an educational atmosphere for definitely myself. Excited to learn that Democrats in front of the thing yet another and they have their own delegation here and that's. Big part of the point of this project is and all of the delegations that aren't here for the DNC. Can't find their talent you. Can. CE elements from where they're from as well and doesn't tell us. More about the design process that the delegation actually had a hand as well wouldn't just the heart he has this isn't really a democratic process and starts and it's. So that concept was not a former governor and written down and it brought in. Host committee they did a lot of work. Com and eat he reached out to me and then came would you mind health overseen this project. Effectiveness. Mom and part time and a lot of finger at practice and are next on college senior alert. Your alert is your own easy organ and leasing and the need that Mercury a lot of used in the near Pratt Dixon is eleven mentoring program. They also have been over 4000 murals around Philadelphia Hillary Clinton this year old city tomorrow. That mural arts program oversaw the that he acquisitions made over eat. Keeping track pants which was done out at its height of the Marines. Terminal on little sleep that we all fifty sitting down together and we're now and yeah he learned yeah there. Together they aren't as he could have been okay Paul and I. They're the glad yeah yeah yeah yeah. Leno flying range that he's. Art is not good as we'll learn we'll see an illustrator and CNN he's. Here is doing really phenomenal. And that they greens you know all ages all alone. That's in the background then. It really hurts. It's okay. And diversity of Philadelphia art. It is to get a little eyes little guidance as to where we are right now that City Hall that you're seeing behind the block. We're the next donkey on that area rather than a large amount of protests happening over that we. Today we haven't seen much there so far. And actually we were hanging out with the dirt on Lyle and seeing lots of people coming and taking pictures. Very very good night on them and not ride them that we didn't see anyone like. Saddle up onto the dot Netherlands and people leaning on them hiking mountain really fun couple from Georgia. Came to see their dogs into the picture I would. Fun evening getting from the delegates. A man Knight isn't really overwhelming lead in delegates and actually get involvement profits in the beginning of this well donkey front and tell us about me here but again. Though in the very beginning he has not very hard in this season and haven't eaten in your heart on dot com. They hadn't made it work pulling out their work there have been facing history and there. They're education history and in the delegate actually at this admit thick ice and that they want on it got. Ranging from eight flatware at C screen. Did land he's that they really more sent people that are really important is eight. Thumb on. They attack. Yeah exactly and then delegates on the back to get feedback about the night as well no it's elegant and an ardent. There have been easy for what they've done eat. Carried it back and think they need. And ending delegates eat eat at about midnight along with an era arts programs through each night and any secret that everybody has seen me. Everybody happy if the validity not even and they are not in the symbol of the Democratic Party and Jackson. And so that's obvious little political but the point of the incidents like this agenda or it's really bring. Yes it it with the concept that Ed Rendell at an evening you know and be great to get active eating and interacted with each other. And we need beatable and we have something in rock movement local actor visited together and it was not fun favors done. No you don't even really come home run people think they'll let them entry that there are people scavenger hunt think we're not making downloading. App called gathered guy and find on the donkeys on their and get prizes like.

On them for now they can't. And you can find them by name and anything on their room back. Eight but in the end about why he says there. A couple of comments about their their act now. Pretty neat in an accident I think that's the group to do its huge project like this. Wouldn't seat gain. Endless race heats and billions of phone calls and emails and now that we have the Internet. Have been on monthly angry not particularly and then you said that you had thousands of people then you felt. But the donkey is that haven't been any stand out. Ali and we had been really Greek.
