Metropolis Sunrise by Amanda Browder - May 2020
ArtsWestchester believes that the arts should be accessible to all people and that artwork enriches any environment, be it classroom, conference room, public park, downtown or private development.
Public art presents art outside of museum walls, building community pride, enlivening the landscape and establishing a sense of place. In the hands of artists, dull building exteriors become vibrant destinations, sidewalks become inviting places and ordinary streetscapes become extraordinary.
ArtsWestchester partners with municipalities and businesses interested in utilizing the arts to add value to their projects and communities. There are endless possibilities, but art is at work throughout Westchester in retail projects, libraries, hospitals, hotels, commercial apartments and public housing projects.
Innovative Arts and Business Partnership Brings
Six Murals to Downtown White Plains
ArtsWestchester, in partnership with LMC, a Lennar Company, is in the midst of transforming a construction barricade into a curated exhibit of six street murals beginning on Hale Avenue, wrapping around Maple Avenue and continuing on South Broadway in downtown White Plains. The five New York artists commissioned to paint each mural were selected through a competitive panel process managed by ArtsWestchester.
