Facelift

Daily Clarion/Andrea Howe

Downtown Princeton Inc. member Greg Wright and son Gavin slide a section of a billboard into place on the east wall of the former Greeks Candy Store building at the corner of Hart and State streets in downtown Princeton Sunday. Wright and DPI Executive director Tim Stransky first painted the sides of the vacant building, then created the billboards featuring replicas of advertisements in school yearbooks and newspapers, with some input from Jim Wallace and Princeton Community High School art students and Kris Willis of Cruel Addiction tattoo studio. Wright said DPI is looking for volunteers to create a similar mural for the south wall of the building.
