GW2016 – Thank You!

Thank you, everyone, for helping make the 2016 COT Garden Walk another fun and successful event! We had a great time and enjoyed welcoming you into everyone’s lovely green spaces.

The Garden Walk is the City of Tonawanda’s premier fundraising event, and the culmination of months of planning, organizing, and hard (but fun!) work by a dedicated group of members and garden walk participants. Here are to the people who made it happen — our garden hats are off to you!

Paint Box Project

SIGNAL BOX ART PROJECT HITS THE CITY OF TONAWANDA

Community Canvases has enlisted local artists to beautify City infrastructure

Tonawanda – The City of Tonawanda Visual and Performing Arts and Community Canvases have teamed up to create the “Paint Box Project” for the City of Tonawanda. The project will feature six local Tonawanda artists who will add their artistic enhancements to the signal boxes located in the City of Tonawanda.

“We’re so excited to be able to spread our public art project to the City of Tonawanda,” said Elaine Grisanti of Community Canvases. “As a resident of the City, I’m especially proud of this project and the positive impact it will have on our community.”

Founded in 2013 in Buffalo, New York, Community Canvases has worked with local artists to beautify streetscapes in areas such as the Elmwood Village, Riverside, Main Street, the Buffalo Barkyard and Hertel Avenue. This is their first project in the City of Tonawanda.

“There has been such an overwhelmingly positive reaction from communities in our previous project and Tonawanda has been no exception,” said Grisanti. “We invite everyone to come take a look at the artists in action as they beautify the neighborhood.”

Painting will take place on Saturday, June 11th 2016 starting at 10 am. The artists will create works of art on signal boxes at Niagara Street and Young, Niagara and Kohler, Niagara and Clinton, Niagara and Seymore, Broad Street and Delaware and Main Street and Broad. The local artist are Joan Horn, Sean Patrick Dailey, Bob Gregg, Karen Foegen, Linda Banas and Elaine Grisanti.
