New Website

Hi Everyone! We’re BACK!

This is Sean, Michael’s friend and long time webmaster. We have recently re-vamped, moved, updated, and upgraded the site to a whole new system. Pardon the dust while we continue to renovate a bit to get ready for the great new additions we have coming.

In addition to posts and updates to some of the outdated content, you will also soon be able to interact and customize some of Michael and Yuriy’s art right here on the website, purchase prints of their amazing murals, and more. In addition, you’ll be able to design murals or prints of your own, get sections of murals as prints, and order them. Or, you could even use them as mockups to submit to Michael for mural proposals for your own town or building.

We’re hoping with these new features, we can use the amazing connectivity of the internet to more closely interact with, personalize, and own these amazing artworks even more than before, so that they can be enjoyed in more places around the world than the walls they were painted or installed on.

As always, thanks for your support.  Stay tuned for many more updates, and the unveiling of some new projects that will blow your mind!

From the TED X Event Website:

Since 2010 TEDxPSU has aimed to present conferences that reflect the heartbeat of the Penn State community. This year TEDxPSU believes that Penn State pulse is best showcased in the theme: Yesterday’s Frontiers and Tomorrow’s Horizons.

Yesterday’s Frontiers and Tomorrow’s Horizons is the marriage between the shattered boundaries of the past and the revolutionary ideas of the future.

TEDxPSU believes that by blending lessons from the past and dreams for a better tomorrow we can achieve the best possible viewpoint in the present.

This year’s conference will showcase boundaries that need to be continually broken until they no longer exist, ideas that seem distant but simply need support to become a reality, and projects that came to fruition because they challenged the status quo while incorporating lessons gathered over a lifetime.

TEDxPSU hopes that the inspiring stories shared at this conference ignite conversations, growth, and a continued interest in the amazing developments happening daily within the Penn State community.
