Pro Hardware Downtown Fredonia
The windows of Fredonia Hardware will be bedecked with items the community finds beautiful from November 1 through 22, thanks to a project spearheaded by Professor Peter Tucker of the Visual Arts and New Media Department. 

SUNY Fredonia Visual Arts and New Media Professor Peter Tucker is asking people to contribute to his community-based art project titled, “This I Find Beautiful.”

Tucker is looking for individuals from the widest possible audience to contribute something (anything) they find beautiful to put in the display windows at Fredonia Pro Hardware from November 1 through 22.

“This I Find Beautiful” is a many-tiered project, with roots in social practice art making, a form of creating works of art that uses “social” as the medium.

Tucker intends to create opportunities for people to think about beauty in their everyday lives, appreciate art, and what it means to them.

"What to display is entirely up to the public," Tucker said. "It could be something you found, a picture, a child’s drawing, something that you collect… all I ask is that you keep it family-friendly and that the object not have much monetary value."

"Fredonia Pro Hardware has been kind enough to loan their large display window for this project. Please spread the word, then come see what our community finds beautiful," he added.

Those interested should sign-up to submit their work at or in person at Fredonia Pro Hardware, 31 E Main St.

Drop-off dates are Saturday, Oct. 27 from noon-3 p.m., or Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 9 a.m. to noon.
