Published: November 25, 2019

As previously announced, First Friday Scranton & NorthEast Art Project are co-sponsoring a series of murals throughout the downtown Scranton footprint.

The latest mural is on the side of Tequila at 414 Spruce St. Artist Eric Bussart will be officially unveiling the mural during the December First Friday on the 6th.

NEAP, created by artist and business owner (Electric City Escape), Ryan Hnat, aims to pair local artists with businesses to create public works of art in Northeast PA. NEAP’s mission is build a sense of community through art. Currently, there are several artists working on NEAP murals throughout the area and they are always accepting information on new artists.

The First Friday venues will be selected by a committee and from suggestions and recommendations of residents and business owners. Businesses and community groups that would like to join in the sponsoring of these murals are encouraged.

NEAP and First Friday Scranton made clear that so long as there is still a space that can be improved in Downtown Scranton, this project will continue.

First Friday Scranton continues to be a foundational event fostering growth and supporting local business and the arts in Downtown Scranton. They hope to grow this mission by supporting NEAP’s in bringing more public art to downtown Scranton, and encouraging other businesses, Foundations and supporters to join in the sponsorship of these murals.First Friday Scranton is currently eager to hear from property owners who would like to support having a mural on their building.
