art museum/hardware store in the city

Star Supply in the Mahoning Commons just west of downtown is not just a place to get 1,726 feet of copper wire and keys made for 90 cents, but it's also a mixture of industrial art, pop art, and post-modern scuplture.

The slingshot car that greets you in the main parking lot is priceless.

Almost every sign inside the store is hand-painted. Not only can you find great deals here, but the surrounding artwork is an inspiration as well.

Star Supply is located at:
875 Mahoning Avenue
Yo. O., 44502

The greatest artwork at Star Supply is on the roof.

Seen from Satellie and aerial photos, the roof is painted as an Armed Forces Vietnam Campaign ribbon
