Faculty Awarded NYC Public Art Commission

Kutztown University professor Rose DeSiano, Department of Art and Design, has been selected by New York City Parks as the recipient of the Highland Park Art Grant. DeSiano will receive an award of $25,000 to create her proposed artwork, "Public Continuum," to be displayed in Highland Park on the border of Brooklyn and Queens from Summer 2023 to Summer 2024. The Highland Park Art Grant supports the creation of one new, temporary artwork by a New York City-based emerging artist in Highland Park. The resulting artwork will transform Lower Highland Park into an art destination, with supporting events and programs.

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

High pressure brings a day without risk for showers, which is a nice change of pace. Fair skies with a high of 85. Dew point levels will also be on the slightly elevated side, but only slightly, as compared to the very muggy uncomfortable levels of the past week. Enjoy while it lasts.
