The Greater Binghamton area is host to an array of artistic endeavors and is home to many artists and works from around the nation and the world. This weekend I had an opportunity early Saturday to visit a series of wonderful murals around The Triple Cities. Many of the murals around town were made possible by the iDistricts Murals and Mosaics Public Art Program, which is a collaboration between Broome County Planning, the Broome County Arts Council, New York State (Upstate Revitalization Initiative), The City of Binghamton, The Village of Endicott, and the Village of Johnson City.
