The Public Art Academy would like to build a new sidewalk called World Mural Walkway, at the feet of the Inspiration State College mural, a tribute to the figures from the State College and Penn State communities who have been an inspiration to so many.
The mural artist Michael Pilato would like to expand the artwork and add additional inspirational figures that showcase the greatness of Penn State, such as THON, the Blue Band, and Penn State‘s world-renowned academic programs like Agriculture, Meteorology, and Engineering.
In addition to supporting the adding of new figures to the mural, purchasing a brick will also support the ability to apply a protective coating that will shield the mural from adverse weather and acts of vandalism, extending its life and stories for years. Individuals and organizations can now purchase bricks that will then be engraved with your name. It’s your opportunity to publicly show your support for our community.
Please help spread the world about this project! Installation will begin as soon as the Phase One goal of 2200 bricks sold has been reached.
