Melton Center MuralAugust 9, 2014 | Malcolm Johnstone

West Chester PA -- A new mural, painted by Carrie Kingsbury, is now in place at the Charles A. Melton Arts & Education Center and can be seen from East Market Street just past Adams Street.

Pictured in the mural is Charles A. Melton, Executive Director, 1966-1980; Dr. Leslie Pickney Hill, Founder & President; Bertha Williams Porter, Daycare teacher in the 1960s; Allyssa Cappella, New Directions Academic Coach; and Keturah Darwon, student at New Direction Program.

Since the concept of a West Chester community center was first presented by Dr. Leslie Pickney Hill in 1917, the guiding principle has been to promote understanding and cooperation between all people through personal, professional, cultural, and spiritual growth for the entire community. The Charles A Melton Arts & Education Center continues to foster that principle.
