Helping Irondequoit Plan for Progress

Public Art

HIPP has sponsored a number of public art initiatives in the Titus-Cooper-Hudson area, including two murals, an artistic bench and paintings on the silver electrical boxes.

Little Library

More public art for the Titus-Cooper-Hudson District!!! HIPP was fortunate to have I.H.S. artists Nora VanDerMeid and Madison Anderson turn a newspaper box from Batavia News into this clever Little Free Library featuring Irondequoit’s agricultural history and farm stands. Huge thanks also to Irondequoit artist Craig Wilson who was instrumental in the conversion of the newspaper box.

Irondequoit’s latest Little Library is next to the memorial bench at the Irondequoit United Church of Christ on Titus Avenue. Stop by to grab a book or drop a book!

Community Kiosk

The north side of the kiosk in front of the Evans-McGraw Learning Center is dedicated to rotating a display of art work from Irondequoit High School art students. The art work displayed is done by the “Heidi Hoenig Scholarship” winner. The installation of the art work is done each June after the Scholarship winner is named by the West Irondequoit School District. HIPP worked with the Town of Irondequoit and the West Irondequoit School District to fund and install this community kiosk.

In 2023, the art displayed was created by Irondequoit HS seniors Finn Button and Sophia Tobin. HIPP gathered with Sophia, Finn, members of Heidi Hoenig’s family, and I.H.S Art Teacher Extraordinaire Sue Jacobs to celebrate the installation.

Congratulations Sophia and Finn!
