  1. I am interested in purchasing a stone for the Inspiration Way in State College; however, I noticed a desrepancy between the Public Art Academy and the Paterno link regarding the the number of lines per stone. For the 8″ stone the PAA indicates 4 lines while the Paterno link indicates 5 lines. Could you please let me know who and how I can contact someone regarding this matter. Thank you very much, Randall Kurtz

  2. Great work, I really enjoyed the great art work, talking to the artist working on it, as well as the meaning behind it.. very touching
