January 7, 2009 – Help Find Oil Region Public Art

Funding is in place and work has begun, so I’m turning to a little crowdsourcing for the upcoming book I’m putting together, tentatively called, Public Art of Pennsylvania’s Oil Region National Heritage Area(catchy, huh?).

Currently, I’m looking for examples of public art (that is, art that has been planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited or staged in the physical public domain, usually outside and accessible to all.  Examples would include the murals of Ed Ramage in Franklin, David Poulin’s sculptures on Titusville’s Main Street, and CV Curll’s Cornplanter Statue in Oil City.) that I may have overlooked.  especially in more rural areas, Emlenton and Titusville. 

So, if you’ve got one in mind, leave a comment, or drop me a line.  Make sure to check the blog for updates on the project.
