City Canvas:
  • Created vibrant and energizing artworks around the state and imbedded them into major urban areas.
  • Created an opportunity to commission artwork by Connecticut artists for highly visible exterior locations in city spaces.
  • Created artworks that resonated with the community for which they were created.
  • Created either permanent or temporary works of art which varied in media based on the needs of the community and the space.
