For a limited time, the Public Art Academy is offering the opportunity for people to purchase bricks that will make up a new sidewalk underneath the Inspiration Mural in State College, Pennsylvania.
This new sidewalk will be called Inspiration Way, a tribute to these figures from the State College and Penn State communities who have been an inspiration to so many. Michael Pilato would like to expand the mural 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 addition of new figures to the mural, purchasing a brick will also support our 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.
Inspiration Way will be made up of bricks and stones in three sizes:
We will be building this out over multiple phases, with a focus first on the portion of the sidewalk at the intersection of College Avenue & Heister Street. All orders placed before February 1, 2013 will be part of Phase One. Construction will then take place in Spring 2013.
