PHOTOS: Marywood students and Scranton artists create colorful murals along Lackawanna River Heritage Trail
The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail features 40 miles worth of beautiful natural scenery, which is now complemented by some colorful man-made artwork thanks to some Marywood University students and local artists.
After receiving a grant to clean up graffiti along the trail, Ryan Hnat of Hnat Designs brought in fellow Scranton artist Evan Hughes and Marywood students Eric Bussart, Zachary Yahn, Gabrielle Creazzo, Jakob Santos, Megan McClarey, Jamie Bamberger, Kelsey Van Horn, Rachel Hines, Francesca Giuliani, Tiffany Guzzo, Manny Adjei, and Courtney Perri to create a series of nine unique murals in many different styles under the Mulberry, Linden, and Lackawanna Avenue bridges in Scranton, along with some smaller “sticker” paintings throughout that area.
There is nothing else like it along the multi-purpose trail, which begins in Luzerne County and runs through Lackawanna County until it joins the Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail in Simpson and continues into Union Dale.
