Artscapes for Urban Design: Integrating temporary and permanent art into the street design and construction process
Click here for more information
Temporary and permanent artworks integrated into transportation projects and initiatives have the potential to enliven public spaces and enhance pilot projects. From the entire right-of-way recast in vibrant colors to haiku traffic advisories, these pieces communicate the value of our streets as canvases of creativity and capture the attention of pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. Artscapes in Urban Design will highlight the most exciting art initiatives in transportation today, how and when they are integrated into new projects, and who is driving them from concept to reality.
