Sponsors needed mural project

Artist Bob Barko Jr. along with Strollo Architects, Youngstown CityScape and Leadership Mahoning Valley are seeking sponsors for a downtown Youngstown mural project.

A vinyl replica of Barko’s 32-foot-by-6-foot “Here in Youngstown” mural will be installed on West Federal Street next to the former State Theatre. The artwork depicts 92 images of people, landmarks and attractions from the city’s history, and the project also includes a mural painted on the State Theatre facade.

So far, about $4,100 of the $8,000 needed has been raised. Sponsorship levels range from $100 to $1,000. To become a sponsor or for more information, call Barko at 330-881-5819 or email steeltownstudios@gmail.com
