public art

June 12, 2010 - 6:33pm
Artists, students and volunteers combine forces to create art, vegetation out of a neglected space in downtown Syracuse.

A collection of Syracuse University students and local volunteers gathered in Lipe Art Park in April to clean up and prepare the area for gardening and art projects taking place there. Brendan Rose, a masters degree student in architecture at SU, used volunteers to mix cement for an art installation he is creating for the city. The installation is located in the center of the park and will serve as both a graffiti wall and shade canopy for the residents.
