NORWICH – NBT Bank and the Chenango County Council of the Arts have partnered to give area artists a high-profile venue for their artwork. At the bank’s Norwich Office on 52 South Broad Street in the downtown district, a corridor wall just outside the branch has been designated the “Wall of Art.” The work of each selected artist will be featured for two months during regular business hours. The bank recently installed a new lighting system to enhance the presentation of the artwork.
Victoria Calvert Kappel, executive director of the Chenango County Council of the Arts, said: “NBT Bank has a great deal of foot traffic, so the Wall of Art provides wonderful exposure for the talented artists in our communities. The arts council is very grateful to the bank for initiating this project and providing an excellent public outlet for our artists.”
