Join us in celebrating 10 years of the Alley Art Project! Pick up an Alley Art Project Scavenger Hunt, celebrate with cupcakes and punch, meet the student artists and designers, and check out the latest mural up close!
This year, The Rockwell’s Frederick Carder glass collection served as the inspiration for students to design a mural honoring the 150th anniversary of glassmaking in Corning. To connect to the history of glass and the region, students researched six major industries‒canal transportation, glassmaking, the railroad, agriculture, wine-making and tourism.
The 10th mural site is on the rear building facade of 80 East Market Street, and can be seen from the Corning Transportation Center on Denison Parkway. Right now, you’ll notice High School Learning Center Students working on the final details of this large, celebratory mural. Students began painting their design in August.
The Museum will also be free and open to the public until 8 p.m. during Urban Arts Crawl.
The Alley Art Project is made possible in part by grants from The Triangle Fund, The Great Circle Foundation Inc. and William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.
