The Urban Video Project (UVP) is a multi-media public art initiative of Light Work and Syracuse University with technology provided by Time Warner Cable that operates one permanent exhibition site and one mobile projection unit along the Connective Corridor in Syracuse, New York. The mission of UVP is to present exhibitions and projects that celebrate the arts and culture of Syracuse and engage artists and the creative community around the world.
As an important international venue for the public presentation of video and electronic arts UVP is one of the few projects in the United States dedicated to continuous and ongoing video art projections. UVP uses the latest in digital projection technology to project high-definition video or digital images.
UVP Everson can project an image just shy of the size of an average IMAX screen, above the beautiful sculpture plaza of the Everson Museum.
UVP is part of the Connective Corridor, which is emerging as a significant strip of cutting-edge cultural development connecting Syracuse University with downtown Syracuse. It is home to three major universities and more than 25 arts and cultural venues. In the coming months and years these venues will be stitched together and showcased with new urban landscapes, bike paths, imaginative lighting, public and interactive art, signage and way-finding systems. Light Work is a nonprofit, artist-run organization dedicated to the support of artists working in photography and electronic media. Light Work is a member of CMAC, the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers at Syracuse University.
