The Central District Public Art Coalition (CDPAC) is pleased to release the Central District Public Art Plan by Kistler/Higbee Cahoot. The Central District Public Art Plan is a template for communities within the Central District (CD) to use. It lays out a vision for neighborhoods to create public art that speaks to residents by incorporating neighbors’ ideas and involving neighbors in the creative process. It is a community driven plan that was born of the desire of CD neighbors to create a series of community gathering places and to revitalize underused spaces.
The Central District Public Art Plan is an effort to engage the entire Central District community including residents, businesses, schools, and service and religious organizations in order to showcase the unique character of the area.
The main funding source for the CDPAC are funds raised by the Central District Garden Tour (GT) and volunteer labor. There are a variety of activities involved in making this a reality. We are very hopeful that these activities include as many neighbors as possible along the way. If you are interested in volunteering with us, we can use your help with a variety of activities including the day of the 2012 GT, June 9th. Setup and take down at the main plaza, soliciting sponsorships, soliciting food trucks, contacting potential partners for the CDPAC’s projects, web design/support and other possibilities too endless to enumerate here. If you’re interested in joining us, please contact us.
