Introducing the 10th Anniversary Alley Art Project Mural Design: The Art of Industrious Minds

Posting Number 3124   Date: 01/31/19     Return to Posting List

This year, The Rockwells Frederick Carder glass collection served as the inspiration for students to design a mural honoring the 150th anniversary of glassmaking in Corning. To connect to the history of glass and the region, students researched six major industriescanal transportation, glassmaking, the railroad, agriculture, wine-making and tourism. To further enhance their understanding, guest speakers presented additional information about the rich history and vital importance of specific industries. Students then created individual paintings exploring community and personal connections to these industries. In turn, professional artist and HSLC graduate, Brad Leiby, incorporated the student artwork into the final designs for the 2018 mural.

The 10th mural site is on the rear building facade of 80 East Market Street, and can be seen from the Corning Transportation Center on Denison Parkway. Right now, youll notice the building wall being prepped by artists-in-residence Bradford Leiby and Corning Community College art professor David Higgins. Students will begin painting their design in August with a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for Friday, September 28 during Urban Arts Crawl.

This project is made possible in part by grants from The Triangle Fund, The Great Circle Foundation Inc. and William G. McGowan Charitable Fund
