Finger Lakes ReUse is partnering with Ithaca Murals on this fantastic project. In the spirit of helping heal our community and our world, we have asked that mural proposals incorporate connecting the impacts of reuse to at least one of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

This summer two artists completed murals reflecting these themes: Bradford Leiby painted one of our pick-up and delivery box trucks and Terrance Vann painted a mural on the front of Ithaca ReUse Center.

“I think that it’s a really cool thing that this piece of artwork that I’m going to make is going to travel around Ithaca and get a lot of eyes on it,” said Bradford before starting his work. “And it’s awesome to work with a great community organization like Finger Lakes ReUse.”

With a goal to have 5 completed murals, and two more on their way in 2020 – Stay tuned for more updates.
