The River Oyster

The mural project in Berwick that celebrates the Susquehanna River. Artists Maria Roman (Berlin) and Courtney McCabe (Virginia Beach) wanted to support and shape Berwick's river-town identity through art. Fourteen volunteers helped them complete the mural in 14 days, making 2023 the summer to celebrate life under water.
