"Sweet Harmony" Community Mural

 

   
   


It’s finished! Thank you Downtown Dayton for the grant from Art in the City in collaboration with Front Street Global Artist Initiative to fund this community project that can be seen at Levitt Pavilion Dayton… the mural is on the back of the Jumbotron at the Levitt, there was just a blank area with the backside of the screen exposed to Main St… a wall was built where there was none so Samantha Mang, Dan Wells and the Front street art community could bring the Dayton community at large into the project during Art in The City.

(Front Street team of artists: Dan Wells, Samantha Mang, Richard Lundin, Paul and Buena Potter, Abiona Pleasent, Adam Brown,  Athena Vallone, Kelly Ingerson, Ashley Simons, Colton Tant, Margie Grove)
