The public is invited to provide ideas for a mural art project for the Keswick Avenue Underpass in Glenside on Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Glenside Hall, 185 S. Keswick Avenue in Glenside.  Muralist Kimberly Mehler will discuss design concepts and present examples of other community murals. Subsequent meetings will be held on Tuesday, March 27 and Monday, April 23 at the same time and place.

          Project partners include Cheltenham Township, who secured a $1,650 grant for the mural, Abington Township, SEPTA and community-based organizations such as the Glenside Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Glenside Community Partnership, the Cheltenham Economic Development Task Force and the Cheltenham and Abington Environmental Advisory Councils. 

          This project was supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA). State government funding for the arts depends upon an annual appropriation by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. Additional support of the PPA Partnership in Southeastern Pennsylvania is provided by PECO.

          For more information on the mural project, contact Cheltenham Township at 215-887-6200, ext. 112.
