Join us in celebrating the 16th mural of the Alley Art Project that celebrates creative community connections.  Witness the unveiling of the mural, meet the student artists and designers, and check out the latest mural up close. 

In collaboration with the High School Learning Center (HSLC) of the Corning-Painted Post Area School District and SUNY Corning Community College (CCC), students worked with Teaching Mural Artist Alice Mizrachi to design the latest Alley Art Project mural. The 2024 mural illustrates the layers of community connections between students and their peers, friends and families, as well as the HSLC and their surrounding environments. Inspired by artist Romare Bearden in The Rockwell’s collection, students examined how art can provide a powerful lens to convey a message or an idea, voice important issues and enlighten people to see beyond a singular perspective. With numerous lifetime achievements, Bearden focused on using the arts to engage people in conversation and improve the public understanding of issues faced by the African American community. Students considered how art in public spaces can impact people in their day-to-day lives and how their youth voices can be amplified through an artistic, expressive mural project in Corning, NY. 

 

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Triangle Fund, and the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc.
