News & Notes

That’s the latest for the State Street Mural Project, a collaboration among the Bradley Street Bicycle Co-Op (BSBC), Arts For Learning Connecticut, the Upper State Street Association (USSA) and local artists Alex Novak and Anika Stewart. Earlier this year, the project received $8,000 from the Could Be Fund, a project of the Elm City Innovation Collaborative. As they work to reach matching funds by the end of the fiscal year, artists plan to begin priming at the end of the month.
