Green Crescent Project

Partners: Public Works

Budget: $250,000

Status: Call for Artists will be posted on November 9.

The Green Crescent Project, part of the [email protected] project is a one block stretch of land that runs adjacent to Stevens Avenue and I-35W between Lake Street and the Midtown Greenway. It will serve as a high quality pedestrian/bicycle link for community members, commuters, visitors and anyone using this link to make a connection between the Midtown Greenway, Lake Street and the new transit facility and plaza.

Possible art opportunities include gateways or wayfinding artworks integrated into the space, pavement treatments on the pedestrian trail, artistic treatment of seat walls and a light installation. Goals of the public art project include:

Be a welcoming safe space for all residents in the adjacent neighborhoods as well as for daily commuters and one-time visitors.
Be a space that supports and explores the idea of connection – the connection of adjacent neighborhoods, and the actual physical link between the Green Crescent pedestrian and bike trails and the Midtown Greenway and Lake Street.

For more information contact Ann Godfrey.
