Community-based art project brings six sculptures to city neighborhoods
The Community-Based Public Art Project was an effort to add artwork to local neighborhoods. With $25,000 from the city budget, the Syracuse Public Art Commission along with Tomorrow’s Neighborhoods Today made the installation of the six pieces of art a reality. In the South Side, a piece, “Community As Family,” by Fayetteville sculptor Peter Michel can be seen brightening up the entrance to Beauchamp Branch Library.
Other works include:
• “Honoring the Onondaga Creek” by Peter Michel Meacham Field at W. Seneca Turnpike and Onondaga Creek
