I had a chance to catch Nate Harris (@procrastonate) adding to the #PhillyArtistSeries at the @FreedomPay’s HQ in Philadelphia. There are a TON of other commission works by local artists like @mmerde___ and @truehandsociety throughout their office. Much more to come from this series, stay tuned. Oh, and look at that view.

“The most difficult part of art-making isn’t the physical putting together of elements. It’s facing your fear of manifesting an expression of yourself. Doing that takes courage and I think our battles are more invisible than we realize. For me art is about survival. Eating and sleeping are just the details that fall into place when you figure out what really makes you alive. Surviving means showing up every day, fighting for my work, and putting my time in--and that's the second hardest part. Even if all I do is sweep, I still respect the process. It's evolution at its finest-- the willingness to be wrong, to let go, to change. In the mornings I help people get to work with @Lyft and then I go to the studio and put in a full day of work. It's a great routine and real privilege.”

“Top 3 most inspirational figures in our lives: Brian Dawkins, Rocky, and Vince Papale. Make believe or not, they’re all Philly guys. Their mental toughness and “can’t lose” mentality heavily influenced us in the early stages of our lives. We instantly fell in love with the positivity and empowerment each of them displayed through sport. This led both of us to pursue careers in strength and conditioning. When we started our businesses last year, driving with @Lyft helped us pay the bills. It wasn’t until February of 2017 that we started acquiring a consistent flow of clients and almost one year later we’re proud to say, we’re pursuing our businesses full-time. @Lyft provided us with the opportunity to fund our dream jobs and for that, we're thankful... Go birds.”

"I'm most passionate about our city’s wide array of public art and murals, and the AMOR statue is one of my top recommendations to visiting art lovers. It’s not only a twist on the famous LOVE statue visitors flock to for their travel photos, it's a proud dedication to a population that champions this city. It’s a celebration of diversity and unity, something Philadelphia has always stood for. They don't call us the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection for nothing! Whether promoting the treasures of this city and giving advice to out-of-towners hunting for cheesesteaks, events, local art, and the like, it's no wonder my @Lyft driver profile says, "Ask me where the best attractions are!" -- I constantly serve as an ambassador to Philadelphia both professionally and personally.” - Ciara (@Luna__Soul)
