SYR Community Art Program
In November 2020, Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) launched the SYR Community Art Program. Consisting of nearly 200 paintings from 11 community organizations, the artwork will be displayed at SYR for one year.
The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) reached out to high school art departments, organizations that work with individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities, senior living facilities, and juvenile detention centers to gauge interest in the program earlier in the Fall of 2020. Organizations who agreed to participate were delivered their requested number of blank 12” by 12” canvases for distribution to individuals they serve. Individuals used paint, crayons, and more to create their masterpieces.
