The west side of Syracuse is decorated in art, and a local non-profit wants to contribute more to the area.
Believe in Syracuse has a mission to promote positive perceptions of the city. In that spirit, the group is turning the face of 1022 West Fayette Street into a mural. It's seeking submissions from artists until March 16.
The theme is simple: They want art that makes people believe.
"We are trying to not put too many parameters on it," said Believe in Syracuse Board of Directors President Paul Colabufo. "We want the creative people of Syracuse to do what they do best and get creative, but we're really looking for a positive message, a 'Believe in Syracuse,' believe in yourself-type message."
Following the submission deadline, a committee will review the proposals and select an artist. The project budget is $20,000, which will pay the artist, provide supplies and more. To learn more, you can visit the organization's website.
