Man One: Mural Arts in Binghamton TUES & WED!!

March 11, 2014 by pegjohnston

On March 25 AND 26th, ManOne will be in Binghamton to engage with the Binghamton and BU Communities about public art. He has just agreed to speak at a community meeting sponsored by the Dept. of Public Art on Wednesday March 26th (gather at 6:30 program at 7 pm) at the Cooperative Gallery 213 State St. Binghamton.

BU's GEN10, whose mission is to lead innovation and creativity in our city, to change mindsets, and transform culture, is flying an urban artist from LA, Man One, into Binghamton to visit and interact with people in the community. Man One transformed downtown L.A. with the power of art, and now he wants to do the same in Binghamton!

Along with a number of other highly involved community members and organizations we will be hosting a speaking event where he will share his story and offer guidance on how to make Binghamton a better place to live, work, and enjoy. The Tuesday March 25th event will be held at 7pm in Old Union Hall on the Binghamton University Campus.

This is part of a bigger plan to put on a downtown Binghamton Mural Festival in May, with Man One as the catalyst for change. This will involve all segments of the community and the meetings he will have with residents will inform the murals we can create. For more information contact binghamtonbridge@

City council votes 'Aye' for Public Art Advisory Board, Mayor David approves

March 6, 2014 by Anonymous

After multiple public hearings and vocal support from the Binghamton community, City Council has voted in favor of the Public Art Advisory Board.

On Wednesday, March 5th, during City Council's Business Meeting, Proposed Local Law 14-1 was unanimously co-sponsored and passed, establishing a Public Art Advisory Board. Councilman Motsavage introduced it to the council, stating that although they would like to clarify parts of the legislation later through amendments, such as the residency requirement for appointed members, this was something that should be passed now to get efforts started.

In the next coming months we should see the Mayor begin requesting letters of interest from the public. Mayor David will be responsible for five appointments onto the board, three of which must be professionals in the field of visual arts, graphic design, or architecture. Anyone may submit a letter of interest for a position in the board. More details to come.

Update: The Department of Public Art (DPA) is planning on hosting an event around the efforts and visions of local groups to promote public art in the City on Wednesday, March 26th at 7pm at the Cooperative Gallery 213 on State Street, Binghamton. This is a great opportunity to stay involved in the local arts and share your vision with other interested members of the community! Contact binghamtonbridgeATgmailDOTcom for more details.

Hancock 17 Drone War Crimes Resisters to Continue
The first day of the trial of the Hancock 17 Drone War Crime Resisters began Friday, January 3 to a packed courtroom of over 75 supporters.and ended just after midnight early Saturday morning, January 4. The trial continues Monday, January 6 at 5 pm at the Town of Dewitt Court, 5400 Butternut Drive, East Syracuse, NY.

The first day included powerful opening statements for the group by Ed Kinane and Clare Grady, which began with a moment of silence for people killed by drone attacks. Ed powerfully stated that the defense was the convergence of two paths - the paths of legalism and of justice and conscience - and that the activists came not to break laws, but to uphold International Law.
