Canandaigua Firehouse to become canvas for young artists

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

This summer, the Canandaigua firehouse on Main Street is set to transform into a vibrant display of public art, thanks to the creative efforts of approximately 120 young artists aged 7 to 18.

The project, part of the city’s Paints & Rec summer camp program, will feature murals that celebrate the history of firefighting and honor firefighters who have died in the line of duty.


Students will paint both the exterior and interior of the firehouse. Highlights include a 40-foot mural of a fire truck along an alleyway wall, integrating elements of the fire department’s 200-year history.

The initiative builds on the success of last year’s program, which brought artistic flair to Jefferson Memorial Park.
