“Lovescaping” in downtown Wheeling

Valentine’s Day is when we show appreciation and extra love to others. This year, students from WJU’s Mother Jones House, art students and organizations such as Youth Rebuilding the Ohio Valley, Students for Life, Hess Mentoring, and Enactus, not only wanted to express love to humans but to vacant buildings in downtown Wheeling as well. There are a number of buildings that offer historic significance but are in need of TLC in the area. Some of these building are either for sale or rent. In honor of Valentine’s Day, students made cut-out hearts with catchy phrases written on them, and hung them to buildings as part of the “All We Need is Love Campaign.” This was an effort to gain appreciation of historical buildings. Messages such as “find me somebody to love” and “love gets  better with age” were presented in hopes to occupy the buildings.
