April Showers #scrantonlove Public Art Project Added To Upcoming First Friday Festivities

Scranton, PA – Wayne Bank is proud to support First Friday and the #scrantonlove Public Art Project. The April Showers project is a collaboration of several organizations including Lackawanna County, ScrantonMade, Shantytown Design, First Friday Scranton, Scranton Fringe Festival and Artists for Art Gallery (AFA).

As part of the First Friday event set for April 1, 2016, 500 purple, yellow, red and royal blue umbrellas will be decorated by local artists and the public with positive messages about Scranton and Lackawanna County. The local organizers see art as a great way to engage the public and bolster community spirit, encouraging people to come downtown and be inspired with positive feelings about where they live and work.
