Artist Michael Pilato paints a blue ribbon on his mural in State College, Pa., on Monday, June 25, 2012. Pilato on Monday painted the ribbon — a symbol for awareness of child sexual abuse — on the portion of his "Inspiration State College" mural downtown that once included former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse. Over the weekend, he replaced the Sandusky image with Van Kuren's red handprint and a depiction of Dora McQuaid, a poet and advocate for domestic and sexual violence victims and issues. McQuaid is a Penn State graduate and former professor.
