Meeting to Outline Bus Stop Artwork

Published Jan 19, 2006

An interesting opportunity for artists to make their mark on Rochester is coming up. The first informational meeting on the ‘New Art in Transit’ project is this weekend.

Artists are asked to submit ideas to transform three bus shelters along the ARTWalk on University Avenue. A jury will decide which plan will become a reality. The winning artists will receive $44,000 each to design, fabricate, and deliver the shelter. One of them will be outside Gleason Works.

“The goal of the Gleason Works shelter is to capture the essence of Gleason Works from 1865 to the present,” said Jim Turner, an ARTWalk trustee. “Hopefully the artist will work with a committee that the Gleason Works has identified to establish criteria on the products and processes that we have had for our 135 years, and put that into the shelter in front of our building.”

The informational meeting is at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Gleason Works, 1000 University Avenue. You can call 234-6670 for more information or go to the Art Walk website at the link below.
