Group pushes for open space over casino, arts center

Friends, Big Picture Rochester, Ken Sato, is pushing the new idea for the Midtown Parcel 5. Ken and the team want to create a center of the activity in the heart of the city. This shared open space with a small business core will revitalize downtown Rochester. Please visit www.thisisnotapark.com and add your name on the proposal.

This is my next project! I want to light up a panorama picture at Sibley Building Showcases. The goal is that to create a space where people can feel free to walk and hang out. Something I am dreaming is that make a walking path. You come to East End and brink with your partner. And after drink you walk to see the picture. Instead of just moving from your home door to a restaurant door by a car, you enjoy walking on the streets and talk. I think that is a date.

Proposal of Photo Parade, 9 Letters of Rochester.

Proposal of Photo Parade, 9 Letters of Rochester.

http://www.bigpicturerochester.com/press/files/9LettersProposal.pdf

Our proposal for 2011! Photo Parade, 9 Letters of Rochester

Can you connected optimistic words to “Rochester”?

In the photo exhibition of “9 letters of Rochester”, each displayed photograph represents one optimistic word, which starts from one of these 9 letters, R-O-C-H-E-S-T-E-R. For examples, a picture of a lovely couple from Rochester can represent the word of “Romantic” as a description of the first letter of Rochester, “R”. A picture of an old Kodak Camera can be the word of “Originality” as a description of the second letter of Rochester, “O”.
