SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — The Office is the TV show that took the city of Scranton off the map and into living rooms coast to coast for nine seasons.
A decade after the show’s conclusion, Scranton is paying tribute with a special mural to the show that entertained millions.
28/22 News reporter Iyee Jayne was live at the mural Friday afternoon with its artist Kala Hagopian to talk about how the three-year project came to fruition and some of the challenges she faced along the way.
The mural features 17 cast members from The Office, famous quotes from the show, and so much more.
In commemoration of the project’s completion, Scranton Mayor Paige Cognetti and the Board of Commissioners decreed October 6th “The Office Day,” citing the show as one of the city’s greatest tourist attractions and economic drivers.
If you’re ever in the Electric City, you can check out the mural on Lackawanna Avenue in Downtown Scranton.
