Call for artists and business owners to make Batavia more vibrant https://www.thebatavian.com/j-burns/call-artists-and-business-owners-make-batavia-more-vibrant/47456 Sometimes canvas and an easel just isn’t enough for an artist with a big idea. Sometimes, you need to search out a different medium, something bigger, like a building. Brian Kemp is spearheading an effort to connect commercial business owners with artists of all genres to create the “Batavia City Canvas Art Trail.” Brian envisions this art trail as 20 to 30 works of art painted directly on a building or weatherproof art hung on a building. The art trail will incorporate existing works, such as those in Jackson Square, as well as planned new works.

Brian is asking for volunteer business owners to donate a specific portion of an exterior wall for the art trail. Artists are asked to donate their time and talents for creating these works on the buildings.  Artists interested in participating are asked to submit representative samples of their original works so the building owners can be matched with suitable artists.

Below, Brian readies the side of his building for future paintings by local artists.

Much like the Le Roy Barn Quilts, Brian plans on printing free maps for a self-guided tour. The maps will be available available for the patrons of the establishments that are participating in the Batavia City Canvas Art Trail as either a cash sponsor or donation of wall space. 

Kemp says, “This is a creative project between building owners and local artists. Just a grassroots effort to place art into our community with the goal of making Batavia a more vibrant place to live and work.”
