State College Municipal Building
To celebrate the 50th Arts Festival in 2016, we asked State College photographer Chuck Fong to shoot a new version of the 1972 College Avenue photo mural by Ed Joella and D. Ryan Hixenbaugh that hangs outside the State College Borough Council chambers. The mural provides a remarkable document of the town side of College Avenue, from Heister Street to Fraser Street.
After May 1, the new mural will hang in the third floor hall. The building is open during the business day. For more information, and a peek at the mural, click here.
Entries from our 2016 Banner Competition hang in the building’s atrium.
