The Greater Syracuse Community and organizers want to uplift neighborhoods with colorful painted scenes on boards placed on decaying properties. Their teamwork aims to improve neighborhood surroundings and to let residents know that others care.
A group gathers on a Saturday in the parking lot of a now defunct church on Syracuse’s South Side. The Syracuse Land Bank owns the property at the corner of South Salina and Colvin Streets. People are given large panels of primed boards set-up on horses to create some artistic flair.
