Public Art and Solar Innovation

May 7, 2017 by imc-editor

The Southern Tier Solar Works sponsored a Workshop Sat. May 6th, featuring the Land Art Generator Initiative. After being inspired by all kinds of beautiful solar possibilities, we discussed ideas for the Victory Factory in JC which is that massive white building in Johnson City. What a productive discussion on renewable energy and public art as placemaking tools in Broome County with community organizers, JC planner, BU engineering professor, artists, and students! We also brainstormed some ideas to re-purpose the factory building into a mixed use renewable energy and art incubator including providing subsidized housing, trainings for local residents looking to jump into the workforce, workshops for the local youth, agriculture, and transforming the vacant lot into a sustainable, accessible, and inclusive public space. For more information, contact http://southerntiersolarworks.org/

Southern Tier Solar Works is a not-for-profit program dedicated to developing the solar industry through education and outreach to create jobs, energy savings, and a healthier climate in Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Otsego, and Tioga counties. They can help with residential solar projects and refer people to local solar contractors.
