Stretching over 310 feet across multiple downtown facades, this student-designed mural will highlight Youngstown's Metamorphosis

About this project

Six Graphic Design students from Youngstown State University (with the help of Professor Charmaine Banach and Chief Evangelist of the YBI, Jim Cossler) have designed a mural to showcase the metamorphosis taking place within the city of Youngstown, OH. 

The mural design is complete but needs funding to be printed on vinyl and installed on the block-long windows belonging to the Youngstown Business Incubator.  This urban revitalization project helps bring more culture to downtown Youngstown, and more pedestrian traffic to the downtown area. 

The mural design blends urban skyline of Youngstown with industrial steel scenes and technology plus nature to show the growth and change of the city from an industrial mecca to that of a technological and soon a cultural one.  Because the mural is designed to span an entire city block, each student is responsible for a "piece" with integrates with the whole.  The talented design students are: Kevin, Brandi, Bren, Rob, Paris, and Blade.  Also special thanks to Casondra O. for helping record the video.

So help us make Youngstown a better place and support our mural project!

Extra donations beyond the goal will fund poster projects by AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) Student Chapter at Youngstown State University.
