Young Audiences of Rochester (YA) coordinated the execution of two major public art components - eight Mosaic Light Poles and two Painted Traffic Control Boxes - sponsored by the City of Rochester and Bergmann Associates as part of the Art Walk Extension project, a permanent urban art trail that connects the art centers and public spaces within Rochester, New York's Neighborhood of the Arts (NOTA).

 

The exquisite and unique mosaics adorning the light poles were also designed and created by high school students, led by prominent teaching glass artist, Elizabeth Lyons, who guided the development of their concepts and incorporated the neighborhood’s rich history, existing structures and public art. into the final executed works.
