Love Letter to a Rustbelt City

More

Here's a fantastic video, "Love Letters to Syracuse," that illustrates the transformative, community-building role public art can play. For the project, artist Steven Powers painted bold, vivid messages about the city across old train bridges. The messages came from residents who were asked what they loved or hated about the community. See for yourself (via the Sustainable Cities Collective).
