River walk

One of the reasons we're driven to create murals is for the opportunity they presents to expose young people to art. For this project, we aren't just exposing them to it - we're involving them in it! Harrisburg native James Dunn will work with children from St. Stephens School to install a series of murals along the Susquehanna on Harrisburg's River Walk.

At locations along Harrisburg's Riverwalk, St. Stephen's students will paint wildlife found along the Susquehanna and learn about the river while they're at it.

Sayford Market NORTH

The Sayford Supermarket on 3rd Street in Midtown will receive not one, but TWO murals during this year's festival. The wall facing the Susquehanna Art Museum will become a canvas for Craig Welsh aka @gowelsh of Lancaster

Craig is a typographic fanatic and revived the a decades old font designed by Alvin Lustig. If it looks familiar, this is the same font Jeff Copus used in his Harrisburg mural at Zeroday Brewing Co. and Midtown Cinema.
