City Mark Capital Art Project

Deadline: August 8, 2024

The objective of the City Mark Capital Art Project is to give Rochester, NY a new permanent physical Artwork that recognizes and celebrates the City Mark design. Hidden in the design’s simplicity are the two iconic images steeped in our City’s heritage: an old mill wheel and a five-petal lilac. Originally intended to identify City government functions, the Mark has grown to also be a point of public pride. The Project is aligned with the goals and strategies of the Arts & Culture section of the Rochester 2034 Comprehensive Plan, which identifies the importance of public art in the City of Rochester.
