A new mural for the City of Cortland has begun fundraising efforts to make a dream into a reality. The mural would be located on the north side of the Homer Avenue Plaza facing the Grace Brown House.
“We are Cortland community members interested in making our community a more beautiful and inviting place to live, work and play,” said Adrianne Traub, fundraiser organizer.
The project is being led by artist Crystal Lyon and all members of the community are invited to help bring the mural to life, including all residents and staff at the Grace Brown House (the organization which runs the house is not involved in the project).
“This mural honoring Grace Brown incorporates our local history which serves as a visual reminder of who we are, who we have been, and where we are going. Murals create a sense of social connectivity that helps us better understand and appreciate each other.” Adrianne Traub said to X101.
So far, $2,675 of the total $4,500 has been raised for the mural project, if funding exceeds the $4,500 goal, the mural will then be expanded. Painting is expected to begin in early August and take about 1 to 2 weeks to complete.
