Community art project begins on Clinton Street

On Saturday, July 29 the Springfield Art Gym began a community art project. Volunteers met at the stairs across the street from the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center located on Clinton Street.    


  1. I wonder.....Who gives permission for this kind of "artwork"?...And the other "artwork" around town?....Who owns the stairs?......Who decides what kind of "art" should be done?...Am I the only one who thinks they should have stopped when they cleaned and repainted the stairs grey?

    1. It looks like bad graffiti!

    2. It looks great and brightens up the town. Thanks to those who took the time to make this town a little nicer. I'd love to see even more of this.

  2. Yeah, you're the only one numb nut. Springfield has an amazing, unique, hillside topography and falls that could be transformed into one of the most beautifully landscaped communities in North America. Few understand the Black River drops more within Springfield than Niagara Falls. Obstacle to improvement has been lack of zoning and planning due to colossal idiots on the selectboard and indifferent, lazy, slum lords allowed to destroy community property values. Imagine if you will, razing all the eyesores and precision, manicured, hillside, gardens along Clinton Street, Elm Hill intersection, VFW and North Springfield Road. This is commonly done in California and Oregon and could happen here. Massive kudos to these volunteers and the garden club. This place sucks and anyone busting their ass to make it better on their own free time desires praise. Maybe it will just suck a little less.
