Glens Falls is rolling out its new Arts District, with colorful banners and various other sidewalk markers featuring the Arts District Logo. Branded bicycle racks are also in production and will be placed at several key arts institutions in order to promote and facilitate bike traffic from Warren Country and Feeder Canal Trails.
These markers signify the beginning of a master plan for public art in Glens Falls, spearheaded by the late Glens Falls mayor Ed Bartholomew. Artwork will cover the downtown area, ranging from painted electrical boxes to large scale murals and sculptures slated to begin production this fall and into 2021. These projects will create an Arts Trail within the Arts District accessible to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic highlighting downtown, Warren Street, and neighborhood arts organizations.
