                 CALL FOR ARTISTS

                        The Chenango Arts Council Invites Artists Entries for:

              Public Arts Initiative 2015

Public Arts Initiative (PAI):  The PAI was created to present an inviting and welcoming image of our community as a destination place by bringing the arts to the public in everyday life.  Public art enriches the areas where we live, work and play, thereby increasing business, encouraging tourism and reducing unsightly or vacant areas. The PAI will support and showcase local area talent and give artists greater exposure for their work. Click on the above link for entry information.

The Summer Public Art Initiative gallery opening will be on Friday, June 26 from 5:30-8pm. The exhibit will be up until Friday, August 28 and is free and open to the public.
