Lehigh Valley’s Inspirational Murals
April 16th, 2013 posted by Ryan Hogan
In the wake of yesterday tragedy in Boston, I’d like to share with you a list of five beautiful Lehigh Valley streetscapes. All of which have been created by individuals and groups who put their talents and time to a much more positive use.
It’s a shame that these senseless events continue to haunt our world and cause such harm to innocent men, women and children. Please continue to stay positive Lehigh Valley. I hope these masterpieces bring a smile to your face today. So without further ado, and in no particular order of importance . . .
