"The goal of 'Art Walks On Water', a project for ports and waterfronts, is to create a 524 mile art gallery the length of the New York State Canal System. Community commissioned installations, committed to strengthening regional identity, would connect over 230 towns and villages, showcasing local artists and history while creating tourist destinations."
