  • 27 Temple Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    The Kelly House bus stop has an awesome overhang and name plate, but the area inside is pretty boring and unappealing concrete. Some cool lighting and/or a mural or paneling on the back could make this feel like a destination - and maybe make taking the bus more appealing for folks coming downtown.
  • 272–338 State St New Haven 06510, United States - 770 Chapel Big
    This could be an alleyway connecting State Street to Orange Street with small businesses lining either side. A first step would be removing or reconfiguring ending owned by the Ninth Square development.
  • 511 Chapel Street New Haven Connecticut - Wooster Square
    We plan on mounting 16 historic and contemporary photographs plus 16 graphic images of cherry trees and the Wooster Square Arch on the walls lining the Chapel Street underpass under I-91. We expect the photos/images to be approximately 8 ft by 8 ft. We will also mount signs above Chapel Street on the I-91 overpass, reading Welcome to Wooster Square and Remembering Wooster Square.
  • 360 State St New Haven 06510, United States - 770 Chapel Big

    This Could Be Restored Dog Park Panels

    “Artified Pups” - A muralist and pet portrait artist will work with assistants and area residents to revive a blighted city block near a dog park by rehabilitating a dilapidated series of existing large photo images. We’ll remove any loose vinyl photo material then replace/paint missing parts, colorize images and add design elements to blackout spaces between by applying the simple sensibilities of adjacent wall art. The project seeks to creatively solve a problem through a planned process that includes community participation to create a continuous application to “artify” old B&W photos, eliminating the expense of removing/replacing them.

    This Could Be a Curated Garden along The MRT

    "We would like to create an attractive community green space that will improve air and soil quality through phytoremediation. This curated garden will include an assortment of plants such as sunflowers, Indian grass, and Poplar trees that are known for their ability to absorb pollutants. The soil along the site location near the bank of the Mill River will be rearranged to allow for greater surface area for planting. "

The NHSO will present FREE concerts and Instrument Discovery Zones at these sites. This project will be launched June 21, 2019 on International Make Music Day and will be part of the Free Keys Piano Trail. The working project title is Free Keys New Haven."

  • 390 Exchange St New Haven, CT, 06513, USA - Fair Haven

    This Could Be a Linear Trail Park

    "We seek support to build the Mill River Trail Green Infrastructure Corridor (the Project) in Fair Haven. The Project will convert four blocks of degraded roadway and vacant land into a linear trail park through the creation of a parklet, a pervious trail system, signage, and green infrastructure practices in the public right of way. These improvements will connect Phase 1 of the Mill River Trail to the north with the newly upgraded Criscuolo Park to the south, providing connectivity between District Square, Fair Haven, and New Haven Harbor, while serving as a destination for all New Haven residents.

  • 160-188 Munson St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell

    This Could Be a Periodic Table Mural

    "We are proposing to create a series of large scale murals to engage the public in an educational, informative, fun, and endearingly nerdy way. By incorporating the following seven elements from the periodic table: Scandium, Iodine, Nitrogen, Cerium, Phosphorus, Argon, and Potassium; along with the formula for Ammonia (NH3) we wish to create a series of murals that vertically spell out “Science Park”. The proposed title is the Periodic Table Mural Project."

    This Could Be The Bridging Lanterns Project

    "If you had a wish for your community, what would it be? At Atelier Cue, we wish for improved connectivity. We wish for finding light in forgotten places. We wish for public art that evolves from a shared local story and encourages community engagement. The Bridging Lanterns project is a multi-faceted effort involving community input, a celebratory event, and a lighting installation. The result would illuminate the dark underpass at Upper State street with dozens of suspended ‘lanterns’, each carrying the wish of a local resident. "
