Our History. Our Characteristics. Our People.
We're inspired! As part of the Northeast Art Project, local artists Ryan Hnat and Eric Bussart painted this mural in Downtown Scranton in 2017. Photo: Ryan Hnat. Image subject to copyright restrictions.

Scranton Tomorrow launched its Mural Arts Program in 2021. Designed to transform the Downtown landscape, and connect communities, murals will reflect the City’s history and qualities that make Scranton unique. The first mural of the series will be installed this summer.
QR codes will be posted at each site, allowing visitors to use their smartphones to embark on brief, self-guided tours. Through partnerships with professional artists specializing in mural art and conservation, a set of guidelines for future public art projects is in development.
