Lancaster Public Art

It feels really great when a client calls you back for another gig.  I had the pleasure of working with the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in 2008 to write a public art strategy for Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Last year, the City of Lancaster asked me to come back to help them develop a ten year public art plan. They had accomplished more than 80% of the strategy.  Who could say no?

The plan launched on December 2, 2016 with a fun event at the Ware Center.

Jennifer McGregor and I collaborated on the Lancaster Public Art plan.  Over 300 people participated in community meetings, a survey, and brainstorms about the right direction for public art in this historic city with a vibrant arts community.

The Public Art Advisory Board and volunteers created public art stations for the event, including this one to design crosswalks.
