The My Hometown Project provides public space for the display of the creative expressions of students whose work has been selected to represent their schools. We see these acts of expression as helping to form a picture of life in Oswego. Our goal in placing the work on display is to showcase our town as a vibrant and creative community. We hope through this action that it empowers students to continue to use visual art to tell their stories and create sites of public memory.
The objective of this project is to build a collaborative relationship between SUNY Oswego and the Oswego City Schools that supports the creation of artwork that uses public space to create public voice and consciousness. We want students to feel their work has transformative powers that can change the community through positive action.
This project is made possible by support from the Ann Carlone Fund, Richard S. Shineman Foundation, Robert & Diana Borman Family Foundation, Art Department, Tyler Art Gallery, SUNY Oswego, and the School of Communication Media and the Arts.
