PNC Creates Photo Mosaic Board To Showcase Student THON Efforts

PNC Bank has taken a different approach in thanking Penn State students for their THON efforts this year. Instead of a typical Tweet or internet ad, PNC has set up a photo mosaic board near Gate C in the Bryce Jordan Center. Oh, and they sponsored a MisterWives concert, but that’s besides the point.

Over the course of THON weekend, any dancer-submitted Tweet or Instagram post including #THON2018 will be quickly printed out and posted on the board, in a style reminiscent of old-school Polaroids. The board, which stands about  8′ by 10′, will display a final image comprised of the individual photographs.

According to PNC Bank representative Joey Caputo, the final mosaic image is a surprise that will be revealed at midnight Saturday and displayed all of Sunday for THON attendees to marvel at. Caputo said PNC made the board to thank the students and showcase their hard work and to display PNC’s commitment to the fight against childhood cancer.

Stop by the Gate C area sometime this weekend to check out the board, which has already garnered about 2,000 visitors, and don’t forget to tag your photos to be featured in the final image!
