Piers Art Park
Local artist Steve Gibson, founder of the Milton Art Academy, has painted a mural at the Piers Art Park on 18 of the piers, an arc of 32 concrete monoliths which are one of the most prominent industrial ruins in town.
The concrete piers, dated to the 1920's, were coal trestles within a coal yard that once included sheds, an office, and a scale house with one trestle connecting the Pennsylvania Railroad (the eat/west railroad, now the Buffalo Valley Rail Trail) and one trestle connecting the Reading Railroad (the north/south railroad).
The Piers Art Park is being turned into a beautiful community space for art, music and dance performances, community events and classes.
Modern Art Alley
Located on Cherry Alley behind local favorites, All-Star Bagels and Gram's Eatery, this series of murals has transformed a drab alley into a colorful modern art installation. Envisioned, financed and brought to life by local businessman and BnB owner Bob Albin and artist Jim Reid, a stroll down Cherry Alley will delight and awaken your imagination.
Inspired by his favorite artists, Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, Reid's art will take you on a journey into the imagination fueled by his bright bold colors and fantastic images.
