Sponsor Spotlight: Public Arts Task Force
Long before DISHES was but a twinkle in our eyes, the Public Arts Task Force (PATF) was conceiving and initiating public arts events throughout Syracuse. Co-Chaired by Vanessa Rose and Briana Kohlbrenner, PATF -- as its mission statement puts it -- is "comprised of artists, community leaders, arts organizations, and interested volunteers who believe that public art is a powerful tool in community building."
Ongoing projects include Lipe Art Park, the Onondaga Creek Parade (slated for the spring), and Rack Pack, an initiative to design and build five bike racks throughout the city. PATF has also made make possible such events as PARK(ing) Day and the much beloved-Salt City Urban Art & Craft Market.
PATF meets at 5:30 pm on the first Thursday of every month at the Everson Museum. We thank the group for making Salt City DISHES possible!
