From local galleries to life-size wall murals, a community full of art is a community full of culture.
The Community Arts of Elmira released the “You Can Make it Here**” public art video. The video made by lead artist Brad Leiby,along with architect Bob Butcher, and video producer Dallas Winchell featured many of the art creations around town.
They all fall under the slogan from “Empty lot to art wall–you can make it here”. This branding is something that really stuck with these local creators.
“It is really perfect for a community like this which is made up of a lot of maker economy, a lot of different creative people doing a lot of different creative things. Creators historically here in Elmira, so the slogan its very all encompassing,” said Brad Leiby.
Art has no limits, and in a creation economy every person, from infant to elder, is a creator. Bringing art to the people is very important.
