As a follow up to my previous post about what an architect does, I thought to share the images of the finished signage, because this is a result of not only what an architect also does, but a artist, designer, conservationist, parks director, two planners, citizens, neighborhood activists, and city officials do to move Flint Forward.
I was one of many loyal and dedicated committee members that participated to make this project happen. It was a great experience to collaborate with so many from across the city. This project is a perfect example of what tremendous talent is still here in Flint, despite what the media leads people to believe. I am proud of the finished product, and the community is equally proud to have a equal voice in the direction of the new signs.
