Mural highlights history in downtown Oneonta|

(Continued)

“We’ve been promoting murals as a way to add to the vibrancy of downtown,” he said. “If you look at old photos of Oneonta, it was full of commercial art. We are trying to bring that back.”

Mandigo said murals have been used in other communities to transform downtown. She is glad to be part of the effort.

The grant was announced in March, but work got seriously underway in July.

The first two wooden panels should be completed by the end of the year, with the rest completed in the spring. Brzozowski said he was hopeful the effort will encourage other downtown murals.

Mandigo said, “We want to make sure it’s perfect because it will be there for so long.”
