I often write about local happenings in Syracuse, because I truly believe in supporting the community that I live in. Over the past few years the city has been more exploratory with art initiatives and people are starting to notice. In this case, I am specifically referring to a Love Letter to Syracuse.
I think most people in the city would agree that it’s hard to miss, mainly because of the scale of the project. Statements like “NOTHING TO DO IS EVERYTHING WITH YOU,” and “FALL LEAVES, WINTER LONGS” grace the surfaces of old train bridges across downtown Syracuse.
Stephen Powers, his team of painters, in conjunction with Syracuse University Chancellor and President Nancy Cantor’s visionary projects, the Near Westside Initiative and COLAB are responsible for the art initiative that has gained great exposure for the city.
