The Oil City Main Street Program will hold a mural walk at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, to celebrate the addition of three new murals as part of its downtown murals initiative. The new murals will appear in the North Side Business District in the weeks ahead.
The mural walk will begin at the updated mural at 8 State St. on Oil City’s South Side, progress over the Veterans Memorial Bridge to the mural beneath, then proceed to view the works at 50 Seneca St. and 275 Seneca St. The walk will finish at Venango Museum of Art, Science and Industry, where music and light refreshments will be provided.
The new murals are original works of art created by professional muralists. Two of the artists have local ties, including Deac Mong, of Rocky Grove, and Berry Breene, an Oil City native who now lives in the Pittsburgh area. The lead artist of the third project is a Pittsburgh artist named Bernie Wilke. In 2016, Wilke created a downtown Oil City mural.
