Public Art

Dolan - Ithaca Portal-4

The City of Ithaca recognizes the important role that public art can play in expressing the vibrancy and diversity of our community through different mediums and place-making. The addition of art- murals, sculptures, paintings, mosaics- in public spaces enriches the everyday experiences of residents and visitors. We invite you to explore our community’s visual environment and engage in and around your neighborhood.

Mural Announcement

The City of Ithaca’s Community Life Commission and Downtown Ithaca Alliance are requesting mural proposals for the greater downtown area. Artists, residents, neighbors are encouraged to illustrate futures aspired from initiatives like the city’s Green New Deal. What images or scenes emerge when the benefits of social, economic, and environmental justice are shared by everyone in our community?
