On May 7, 2019, a blog was posted featuring a preview of a mural being produced by over 100 students from Jeff Tech, under the direction of artist Deb Bunnell from Hollidaysburg. The mural is now complete and installed in Reynoldsville for all to see. The mural can be viewing on the side of the Reynoldsville Hardware building.
Students researched the history of Reynoldsville to decide key important historical items to include in the design. The panels include the Ticklebelly Bridge, the Red, White, and Blueberry Festival, the Reynoldsville Fire Department, the U.S. Airmail Tower and Arrow from the 1920’s, Roller skates for the Reynoldsville Rollerdome, Falcons football, Bulldogs soccer teams, and Jeff Tech’s Viking mascot. The mural was completed in panels that were then installed on the brick building once it was prepped with primer. The past week has seen the work being done to install the mural to completion.
Funding for the project was made possible by Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Lively Arts/ArtsPath program with Indiana University of Pennsylvania through Jeff Tech of Reynoldsville.
