The City of Erie is slated to receive another large scale mural. The site for this new piece of public art are the basketball courts at Bayview Park. The initiative led by Erie Arts & Culture is a collaboration with the agency’s CHROMA Guild and is funded with support from Brian and Linda Graff, Erie Insurance and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development through the Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP), and a special grant from the Erie Community Foundation.
Brian and Linda (Hoehn) Graff made their first contribution to Erie Arts & Culture in 2019 as part of Erie Gives. That donation funded the mural “Rudy,” located on Methodist Towers and painted by international artist Evoca1. The Graffs made another contribution to Erie Arts & Culture on Erie Gives 2020 and that gift is supporting this mural project.
