    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 Light Kiosk

    "Artspace, in collaboration with Designer-Social Innovation Fellow Daniel Pizarro, and Environmental Activist Doreen Abubakar, plan to activate a section of the Farmington Canal Trail in Newhallville known as the Newhallville Learning Corridor (between Starr and Hazel St). Pizarro will lead a team of 8-12 high school students who attend Metro Business Academy and Hillhouse High School in an 8-week design/build workshop to produce a set of handsome cedar kiosks that will be focal points for neighbor organizing and engagement. Working under Daniel, and aided by local artist Kim Weston, the students will design the kiosks to serve as combination sculptures, communal bulletin boards, and beacons of light.:

    This Could Be an Edward Bouchet Mural

    "I plan on creating a mural portrait of scientist Edward Bouchet who the first African American person to receive a doctorate in America in 1876. He was born in New Haven, was the valedictorian at The Hopkins School, earned his diploma from New Haven High School, and earned his PhD in physics from Yale University. Bouchet’s dissertation was on measuring refractive indices, thus the background of this mural will consist of bright planes of color portrayed in a series of abstracted, refracted light patterns. This historical and inspirational work of public art is the Edward Bouchet Mural Project." - Kwadwo Adae
