SAM Mural Dedication

The Susquehanna Art Museum is delighted to announce that the installation of the iconic mural by artist and Messiah College professor Daniel Finch is scheduled for the weeks of August 10, 17, and 24. Finch’s mural design was completed in the artists’ studio on 55 unique 5’ x 5’ panels and incorporates a combination of symbols “meant to serve as an image of beauty, hope, and optimism regarding Harrisburg’s future.” The mural was chosen in October, 2014 after more than 1,000 community members submitted their feedback on multiple designs by regional artists. Thanks to the support of regional organizations such as Messiah College, Visit Hershey Harrisburg, and the Greater Harrisburg Arts Legacy Fund, a dedication ceremony for the Susquehanna Art Museum mural will be held in SAM’s green space on Sunday, September 13 at 5:00 p.m. during Harrisburg’s annual Gallery Walk! This event is free and open to the public.
