11th Alley Mural Art Project underway in Corning
CORNING, N.Y. (WENY) -- A unique educational program through the Rockwell Museum is painting the Corning community with some new colors. This program, in conjunction with the Corning Painted Post School District, has been putting art in the city for over a decade. This week, students began work on the latest project, which is already starting to take shape.
The mural, titled 'Transcendence' is located on the back of Carey's Brew House, on the city's northside. While it's the 11th mural for the program, it's only the 2nd one for that part of the city.
Students work with a professional artist and use the Rockwell's own art collection as inspiration.
"The alley art project really transforms the city by brightening up the alley ways, it increases the asthetics of the towns and it really gives students an opportunity to give back and add to the community," says Amy Ruza, Youth & Family Programs Educator for the Rockwell Museum.
The piece is expected to be completed by the end of September, where they will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony.
