Sharpsburg to unveil next murals in ‘Beyond the Ceiling’ series

Sharpsburg will unveil the next murals in its “Beyond the Ceiling” project on June 15.

The next two murals in Sharpsburg’s “Beyond the Ceiling” project will be unveiled on June 15.

The five-part series is aimed at honoring a group of unsung female heroes in the borough, all nominated by residents for their dedication to the community.

Photo murals highlight women who have gone above and beyond for their neighbors, local organizations and families, officials said.

The public is invited for the reveal of Evelyn Shoop’s photo at 10:30 a.m. at 101 North Main Street near the Etna-Sharpsburg Gateway and then the unveiling at 11:15 a.m. of Barbara Smith’s tribute at the Linden Gym, at Clay and North Canal streets.

The project is paid for by The Heinz Endowments and Sharpsburg Neighborhood Organization, and was done in conjunction with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Martha Rial.

After the unveilings, people are invited to Ketchup City Creative at 612 Main Street to meet Rial and have refreshments.

The first three murals were installed and revealed last October, honoring Jamie Cozza, Mary Jayne Kozlowski and five female Sharpsburg volunteer firefighters.

Cozza, a longtime library volunteer, has a mural at 701 Main Street; Kozlowski, a mainstay at Roots of Faith outreach, has a mural at the Kenneth Curley Parklet at the corner of Eighth and Clay streets; and the volunteer firefighters tribute is at the department along Main Street.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
