Downtown Sayre original mural to be dedicated Friday; Pop-Up Show also planned


(Sayre, PA) – Friends of Sayre Public Art will celebrate the second downtown mural installation with a Dedication and Pop-Up Art Show on Friday, September 30, from 5:00pm-8:00pm. All members of the community are welcome to join the gathering in front of the mural in the alley adjacent to West Packer Avenue. The alley, which will turn into a festive “Artist Alley” for the evening, will be closed to traffic, and guests of the event can enjoy food and refreshments from Mad Hatter and Angry Burrito, as well as live music by Elyse Skerpon and original works of art – inspired by flowers and nature– on display by local artists.

This second mural for Sayre is painted on the side of Plants N Things Florist. The mural depicts an old and gnarled tree, still vibrant, that continues to share beauty, hope, and happiness to all who pause beneath its branches. Be sure to have your photo taken “on the swing” of the mural, and help take part in the Sayre Public Art movement. The mural artist is Dana Twigg, with assistance from Toni Twigg, Kevin Heath, Erik Franklin and Tina Ackley.

All are encouraged to join the festive event and enjoy the food vendors, live music, and displays of local art!
