YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Jesse Reed, a graphic designer based in Brooklyn, said he spent time visiting Youngstown to scout out potential locations to paint slogans he came up with during the pandemic.

After considering multiple buildings, he selected the Spring Common underpass because it feeds directly into West Front Street downtown and provides a blank, white canvas.

“I think it just has the most impact and It’s the simplest way to put it up there rather than distracting with a lot of color,” Reed said. “Sometimes that’s a good thing, but this is the message that we’re trying to have people read if they can read it while they’re driving by.”
