Local artist, Jason Mumford, illustrates 'Erie Strong' message in updated 'Welcome to Erie' mural.
Erie, PA (May 8, 2020) - Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, has commissioned local artist, Jason Mumford, to refresh and update its 'Welcome to Downtown' mural on the south side of the Peach Street overpass. The updated mural includes an image of Atlas holding the world on his shoulders with an inspirational 'Erie Strong' message.
"As Erie begins to open back up today from the Covid-19 pandemic, I wanted Jason to refresh the Peach Street mural with a strong, positive message about the resiliency of the people in Erie," said Jim Berlin, founder and CEO of Logistics Plus. "Jason responded with a very cool image that I think will be a great welcome back message for everyone coming downtown again."
Mr. Mumford is no stranger to Erie or Logistics Plus murals. Circa 2005, Mumford painted the original welcome murals on both the north and south sides of the Peach Street and Sassafras Street overpasses. He also painted the Logistics Plus warehouse 'Don't Give Up The Shipment' mural to the west of Erie's Bayfront Connector. Over the coming weeks, Mumford will be refreshing the north side Peach Street mural and the north and south side Sassafras murals.
Berlin added, "Logistics Plus is happy to say, 'Welcome back' to our downtown Erie neighbors."
