During Fabulous Friday, August 21 at 6:00 PM, the second of five murals will be unveiled on the Dietz Street wall of the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main Street. This mural depicts Laskaris Restaurant, a popular restaurant and candy store at the corner of Dietz and Main for more than 30 years. Eventually, five murals, each depicting daily life of a previous occupant of the building, are scheduled to be unveiled. The murals are being painted by artist Carol Mandigo and will be installed over the first floor windows along Dietz Street which were bricked over decades ago.
The mural project is supported by the Broome, Chenango & Otsego Decentralization (DEC) Program, administered by the Chenango Arts Council, and is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the NYS Legislature. The project was also supported by Main Street Oneonta (now Destination Oneonta) and many private donors.
