The mural at 101 East Boardman Street was completed in August 2016 and features silhouettes of volunteer citizens of Youngstown. The goal was to take something fleeting like a shadow and memorialize it by permanently affixing it to the wall, celebrating a present state of growth and development in Youngstown.
The Mahoning Avenue Archway project was funded by a National Endowment for the Arts grant through INPLACE and the City of Youngstown. The project revitalizes the vacant railway arch over Mahoning Avenue on Downtown Youngstown's west side. The simple LED lights around the arch highlight the form of the strong and resilient structure, while soft orange lighting gives the underpass the illusion of a glowing steel furnace.
Let Knowledge Serve the City is a street art campaign designed to preserve the motto that once stood above Wick Avenue on what is now the Stavich Family Bridge. The phrase is a reminder and message to YSU senior leadership to prioritize education and academics above all else and not lose sight of the mission of the University.
