"THE MOMENT" Mural by Alex Derwick

The TCAC plays a crucial role in fostering a sense of community through our artistic projects. Two years ago, artist Meg Saligman collaborated with the council to create “The Heart of Olean” mural, engaging a significant portion of the local population. Last year, another mural titled “Community Ties” by artist Alex Derwick was successfully completed. Derwick now plans to create a new mural titled “Community Sports, the Moment” this summer, further enhancing community pride and involvement.

The TCAC is seeking support from businesses and community partners to fund this project, aiming for a June start date. Additionally, there will be an open Paint Day for the Community around June 16th, weather permitting.
