This Sunday from 3:00pm until 7:00pm, a lineup of local bands will take the stage to help raise awareness and funds to relocate the Mulberry Street Bridge Murals.
The 86 panels of murals were removed from the Mulberry Street Bridge in April of 2014 by PennDOT to facilitate repairs to the bridge. Due to the design of the renovations, the murals cannot be placed back on the bridge.
Since 2013, a group of dedicated volunteers have been seeking to find new homes for the murals that depict a timeline of the city’s history and feature residents of South Allison Hill.
Known as the Mulberry Street Bridge Mural Preservation and Relocation Committee (MBMPRC), this group has recently partnered with the Susquehanna Art Museum to ensure these significant public cultural assets are placed back in public view.
Phase I involves relocating 43 panels of murals to the corner of Cameron and Market Streets on the grounds of the YWCA of Greater Harrisburg.
Admission to Sunday’s event is by donation, and there will be a select group of silent auction items donated by local organizations and generous individuals. All funds raised will support the preservation and relocation of the Mulberry Street Bridge Murals.
