UTICA – Joshuwa McKinsey doesn’t have his name up in lights yet, but he does have his work, on canvas, on display in downtown Utica for thousands of commuters to enjoy every day.

The Proctor High School student’s design is displayed on a high-flying banner at the corner of Genesee and Hopper streets. He’s one of 70 local artists to have the distinction as part of the Cornell Rust-to-Green “One World Utica – Reimagining the Arts” initiative.

“I feel honored, honestly,” McKinsey said. “It feels great to see something I recently did, this is like brand new that I just did in my new sketchbook. It kind of feels nice.”

McKinsey wants to go to school for game art and animation. He’d like to attend Pratt Institute in New York City.
