Jeff Tech Art Students Create Reynoldsville Mural

A mural depicting the history of Reynoldsville was recently a project of the Jeff Tech art students. Guided by their instructor, Angela Dragich, the art classes researched the history of Reynoldsville to choose landmarks and integral parts of the community to compose the mural. A 20-day artist residency was completed through Pennsylvania Council of the Arts and ArtsPath. This project was funded partially through Pennsylvania Council of the Arts. Resident artist, Deb Bunnell of Hollidaysburg, came onsite to help the students create and paint the mural last spring. The Reynoldsville Hardware was chosen as the site for display of the mural and this fall, maintenance staff members, Troy Frederick, Kenny Spicher, and Travis Kalgren, prepped the side of the building. Jeff Tech alum, Rick August of A&R Tree Trimming lent his equipment for the installation of the mural which took six days. The art resident and her husband traveled from Hollidaysburg to apply the mural to the building. The Jeff Tech maintenance staff sealed the mural after the drying process was complete.
