Public Art / Tactical Urbanism

Project FORA Collaborates with UM Flint Professor Benjamin Gaydos on Tactical Urbanism Art Installation. 

We have spent some time over the past month consulting Ben and his students in a crash course on low budget wood fabrication techniques in preparation for Saturday April 24th installation. The art piece is based on a student led design process that incorporates painted plywood planter boxes growing colorful flowers for the neighbors to enjoy year round at the corner of Welch and Chevrolet. 

This project is brought to you by the generous support of the Flint Public Art Project which received a planning action grant from the Ruth Mott Foundation. 

Please come to the reveal event from 1-4 pm. Below are some sneak peak pictures of what is to come. 

The goal of Tactical Urbanism is to see how the space is utilized with a temporary installation and after a short period of time make adjustments to a more permanent structure for the neighbors to enjoy for many years to come.
