Art and nature combine in a pair of “living walls” being added to the Penn College landscape, stainless steel installations that will also offer a convenient locale for keepsake photos. Designed by the General Services grounds crew and built by Young Industries in Muncy, one side of each wall will contain annuals. “When fall arrives and the annuals have seen their better days,” explained Andrea L. Mull, horticulturist/grounds and motorpool supervisor, “the wall can be spun around to the other side, which has ‘PCT’ lettering on it.” The letters, cut by Penn College welding students and already visible on the initial wall outside the Bush Campus Center, will appropriately frame photography subjects as they look through the center square. Horticulture students also lent a hand to the project, planting some of the material for a second wall to be erected at the southwest corner of College Avenue Labs.
