Artist Selected for Hampline Sculptures

Choose901, Binghampton

We previously wrote about an artist needed for the Discover Binghampton project, and the spot has been filled! An artist has been selected to create 4 sculptures along Binghampton’s Hampline: Pete Beeman.

The sculptures will share the following concepts of Binghampton:

  • The Beginning, which symbolizes William H. Bingham
  • From Boxcars to Bicycles, which symbolizes the role of transportation
  • Grandmothers, which are Binghampton’s heroines
  • Leading the Way for Civil Rights, which symbolizes Binghampton’s Civic League

The project is funded by National Endowment and they are looking for 3 additional local business sponsors at $18,500 each to complete all 4 sculptures. The models of these sculptures are on display at T Clifton Art, so go check them out.

The Urban Art CommissionBroad Avenue Arts District, Livable Memphis and Binghampton Development Corporation are partnering together to make this project happen.
