Public Arts Strategy

Public Art Strategy

The City of Corning is in the process of developing a long-range public art strategy for the community.  This working is being undertaken by the City's Public Art Committee with assistance from staff and a consulting team. 


The Public Art Committee is charged to develop and recommend to the City Council a strategic plan to cultivate and expand public art in the City of Corning, with the clear aim to enhance and propel the City of Corning as a city of and for the arts. The committee has defined public art as:

Public art is art that exists within the City of Corning, either outside or within buildings, that is free and accessible to all. This art can be permanent or temporary, traditional or contemporary, functional or nonfunctional, historic or symbolic and may be owned by the City of Corning or by a private entity.
