Brief Description

The Fairport Public Arts Committee seeks qualifications from artists and artist teams for public art to be installed along the historic Erie Canal at the Bicentennial Canal Gateway located in the Village of Fairport. Winning proposals will be eligible for grants up to $25,000.

The recently constructed Bicentennial Canal Gateway Project has transformed the south banks of the Erie Canal, providing new recreational opportunities and water access on the south side of the canal. An interpretive heritage trail celebrates the Erie Canal Bicentennial and establishes an accessible route connecting village neighborhoods to Kennelly Park.
