The Grove City ArtWorks is thrilled to announce that Olde Town is on it’s way to having another mural! Grove City native Jason Schell will be painting an ode to locomotives. For more than a century, locomotive have been the center of Grove City’s economy. From the Bessemer Gas Engine Company in the 1800’s to General Electric today, the town has played a major role in the history of the locomotive. Today, General Electric in Grove City manufactures the greenest locomotive engines in the world. While the mural will feature a modern GE locomotive, it will also pay homage to Grove City’s history, with the original passenger train station in the background. The roughly 38′ x 8′ mural will be placed on the back of PNC bank next summer.
Artist Jason Schell currently lives in Mexico City, where he crafted his first mural for their public transit system. This will be his first mural in the states, and he’s thrilled to have it be in his hometown. One of his favorite childhood memories is standing at the tracks and watching the trains go by.
HOW TO DONATE:
The project has started thanks to a generous donation from General Electric. But we still need more! All donations are tax deductible. Please make your checks out to “Grove City Arts” and put “mural” in the memo line.
