(WSCR) The mural ‘Inspiration’ by artist Michael Pilato has been a fixture on the outside walls of the Penn State bookstore for years.

The painting features notable members of the Penn State families, such as Joe Paterno. One day after Paterno died, a halo was painted over his head.

When first released, the mural featured a portrait of Jerry Sandusky, but he has since been painted over.

Check out the mural here.
