Fazzino Art Project
In late February (2014), with the support of the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania College of Technology, world-renown 3D pop-artist Charles Fazzino (fazzino.com) created the official artwork of the 75th Anniversary, and came to Williamsport to lead a series of assemblies and workshops. Fifth graders from Lycoming and Sullivan Counties in Pennsylvania helped him build the artwork and at the Little League Baseball® World Series in August, the final piece was unveiled and installed as a permanent exhibition in the World of Little League®.

Most famous for his 3-D renderings of New York and countless other cities, Fazzino has also created masterfully vibrant and detailed tributes to popular icons from around the world.
