YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — WYSU-FM and the McDonough Museum of Art hosted the 19th annual Mad about the Arts event on Friday.
It featured local food and wine vendors for event goers to sample. While eating, various artists played for the crowd, including the YSU Jazz Ensemble.
One of the event organizers said this event is perfect to show off the great things Youngstown has in the community.
“It supports the local businesses and the people around town that are trying to attract people downtown to enjoy what they have to offer and it also showcases YSU in many different ways,” said Tricia Perry of WYSU.
The feature of the event was Dr. Alton Merrell, who is a pianist and YSU faculty member.
