Call for Work – Allentown ‘A’ Sign

Call for Work – Allentown ‘A’ Sign


As part of a $300,000 NYS Main Street Grant which the Allentown Association was awarded to assist local building and business owners in the restoration of their properties, a portion of the funds have been allocated toward the creation of an iconic sign. The 7’ high Allentown ‘A’ will be located at the prominent South-West corner of Allen Street and Delaware Avenue. The intent of the sign is not only to provide map-based information but also be a bold sculptural canvas for art that highlights the vibrant character of the neighborhood. The sign will be made of sturdy aluminum that will be painted and protected with an anti-graffiti coating. On the two ‘A’ faces of the sign the selected artist’s work will be created while the other areas will be painted a complementary color.
