College Avenue Photo Mural
State College Municipal Building Lobby
243 South Allen Street
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. In the summer of 2017 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.
