ABOUT

The Oswego Banner Project
This project is made possible with support from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation, the Art Department at SUNY Oswego, Tyler Art Gallery, the School of Communication, Media and the Arts, the City of Oswego, and the Oswego City School District.

The ultimate goal of this project is to place the completed banners throughout the community. Banners featuring work from the 2017 exhibition will be up throughout the summer and fall at Breitbeck Park,. Washington Square Park, Lake St., and near City Hall. These Banners will be replaced in the fall by banners featuring work selected at this year’s Tyler Art Gallery exhibition. These new banners will hang again in the spring and summer of 2019, to be replace by new banners in the fall of 2019 and so on. At the end of their display cycle, the banners will be recycled into bags, or other fabric products, and sold to raise funds to support the continuation of the project.

Creatively Exploring Collaborative
This project was born and informed by work being produce by the Creatively Exploring Collaborative, a group of academics from SUNY Oswego, Finger Lakes Community College and Mohawk Valley Community College. The primary mission of the collaborative is to inspire and support its members as they engage in community projects that use the visual arts to explore notions of self, place and collective identity. More about this group and the work they have produced can be found at: www.creativelyexploring.net
