ROCHESTER — Art4Trails has put a call out for proposals for public art pieces to be on display this summer in Rochester.

The Rochester nonprofit plans to fund at least two, and up to four, temporary, outdoor installations near downtown biking trails .

The 2022 locations include Silver Lake Park near the old fire station, Mayo Park East by the playground, Slatterly Park near the picnic shelter, and a river landing near the waterfall sculpture at the end of Third Street SE.
