Dept of Public Art Targets Blight

January 18, 2015 by pegjohnston

If you are an artist or a property owner, or know someone who is, please consider participating in the Blight is our Canvas project!

Artists will be creating temporary installments (murals on plywood, sculpture, etc.) to affix to 'blighted' properties (ex. properties with wood panels covering the windows, etc.) with the permission and cooperation of the property owner. The Dept of Public Art has applied for an arts grant from the Chenango Co. Arts Council NYS Decentralization funds. In the proposal, artists will be compensated for their work through the grant, and there is no cost to the property owner to host the pieces - we just ask that they do not remove or cover up the artwork without contacting us.

Our goal is to get public art into neighborhoods and to improve the appearance of blighted properties. Audiences, therefore, include neighborhood residents, local artists who are interested in painting, and property owners who are trying to improve their buildings. The Blight as our Canvas project gives the DPA the opportunity to bring public art to neighborhoods, and especially to neighborhoods that are most economically depressed. It will also give more community artists the opportunity to participate in painting original murals. Some of the BU art students, for instance, were thrilled at the possibility of being able to design and paint a mural for a specific site.

The Dept of Public Art is looking for artists as well as property owners who are interested in the project. Contact the DPA as soon as possible at binghamtonbridge@gmail.com.
