YSUscape holds design contest for downtown mural

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The YSUscape is accepting submissions of Youngstown-themed art for their Community Painting Day mural.

Representatives say that the chosen design will be painted on a building in downtown Youngstown.

According to a press release, all designs should be sent to ysuscape@gmail.com by Friday, July 27 by 11:59 p.m. 

The press release states that the first place winner's design will be selected for the mural, and will receive a $100 cash prize as well. The runner-up will receive a $50 cash prize.

YSUscape representatives state that they are a YSU affiliated organization formed to collaborate with the community and other university organizations to "revitalize and beautify" Youngstown.

According to the press release, there is only one entry accepted per person, and it should be submitted as either a JPEG or PDF format.

Designs can be new creations or choose from an existing portfolio. Entries should include name, contact information and a short description of the design.

Finalists will be chosen and the winner will be selected by the result of an online community poll.

On Community Painting Day YSUscape informs that they will paint the outline of the mural. On the day of the event, the public will have the opportunity to fill in the rest by matching corresponding paint colors to numbers in the mural. The day is scheduled to take place within the first few weeks of September. 

The press release states that The Raymond John Wean Foundation for funding the Neighborhood SUCCESS Grant made this event possible.
