State College, Pa- An alley in downtown State College now has a new look.

A port Matilda artist along with volunteers spent the past two weekends laying out and painting a mural at Humes Alley, covering the side wall of the For men Only Salon and leading to the rear entrance of Webster’s Bookstore Cafe.

The artist is William Snyder III. He says the mural is called “Wild Geese” and is inspired by a poem of the same name by Mary Oliver.

Snyder used eight rolls of blue tape to mask each triangle, and mixed over 95 colors of paint for the mural.
