McDonough Showcases Community Projects

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The McDonough Museum of Art at Youngstown State University will host an exhibit about five projects in Youngstown that have been selected for the Innovative Plan for Leveraging Arts Through Community Engagement, also known as Inplace.

The exhibit will run from June 2 to July 9, with an opening reception 5 to 7 p.m. June 2.

Inplace is funded through a $100,000 grant to YSU from National Endowment for the Arts. Fifteen community projects were submitted for consideration, and in December five were selected to receive $20,000 each for implementation.

Videos and board presentations of all 15 proposals will be on exhibit at the museum. Featured in the exhibit will be the final five projects, including interviews with team members and documentation of progress toward completing the projects.

The five projects are: Shipping Container Bus Shelter, Light the Community, Solar Screen, The Wedge at Hazel Hill and Mahoning Avenue Archway.
