Padua Franciscan High School is celebrated on the new “Welcome to Parma” mural that was unveiled on Sunday, October 25, 2020. The graffiti art is located at Ridge and Pearl Roads on the north side of the former Parma Music shop, which is now Planet of the Vapes. Padua’s Bruin head logo is visible in the letter M, along with Parma’s three public high school logos.

Parma City Council President Sean Brennan (who is also the father of a Padua alumna) organized the project. He wanted to beatify the city with art and welcome motorists entering Parma from the city’s most traveled corridor.
The project, which was completed by the non-profit Graffiti HeArt, was funded entirely by donors, not taxpayer dollars.
