Many traditional planning and development efforts have fallen short of delivering equitable, healthy, sustainable outcomes in communities.
In response, artists and arts organizations across the United States are developing the kinds of human-centered, contextual, adaptive solutions that can strengthen their communities from within.
This poster exhibition highlights 10 creative placemaking projects from across the country, each supported by ArtPlace America, each addressing a community need, and each working within a traditional community planning and development sector: Agriculture & Food, Economic Development, Education & Youth, Environment & Energy, Health, Housing, Immigration, Public Safety, Transportation, and Workforce Development.
Curator: Adam Erickson, ArtPlace America
Exhibition Design: Manuel Miranda Practice
