After missing its previous mural for the last several years, the Mulberry Street Bridge is once again alive with a vibrant new mural celebrating the life of our community. Stretching over 230 feet in length, it is Harrisburg’s largest mural project to date. It features over a dozen faces of real friends and neighbors of Allison Hill, connected with floral elements and color. Led by New York City-based muralist (and Harrisburg native) Ian Potter, the apprenticeship project also involved the talents of Sharnee Burnett, Kwatei Hector, Bryan Hickman and Jonathan Molina to paint the portraits, with over 100 volunteers helping to fill in the colors.
“Growing up in Harrisburg in the 90s, I didn’t see the presence of a mural community, so it’s really cool to come back home and have the opportunity to work with some of the younger generation—giving them some of the literal as well as figurative tools.”
