The mural, a skyline of downtown Youngstown featuring the Spring Common Bridge, was created by Salsi Salama. It will be outlined and numbered in small sections, and participants will help to complete it through a paint-by-numbers style.

Youngstown Mayor Jamael Tito Brown, YSUscape President Daniel Bancroft and four Downtown residents reviewed the submissions and selected their top three designs that would be appropriate for our purpose.

The top three designs were then evaluated in an online community poll based on their quality and appropriateness and how well they reflect on Youngstown’s identity.

The rain date will be Sept. 22. For more information contact Bancroft at (330) 979-5247 or at [email protected].
