Lawndale 5K Vision Zero Oasis

As part of my work on Vision Zero Chicago’s West Side outreach, I designed and helped plan a block-long pop-up oasis at the annual Lawndale 5K. The Oasis included a seating area, live painting, mini-massages, activities from Divvy Bikes and Active Transportation Alliance, plus Vision Zero kiosks, swag, and “Design a Street” activity.

The event aimed to get locals to rething streets as places for people, not just cars – and to recruit them as advocates to reach Vision Zero’s goals.[/one_third]

Bronzeville Pop-Up Paint Party

As part of the annual Bronzeville Summer Nights event series, I collaborated with Bronzeville artist & urban planner Katanya Raby for an evening of art and culture. The event drew kids and adults – many of whom remarked on not having imagined being able to do something like it on the street. [/one_third]

Argyle Museum of Memories

This project collects snippets of memories on Uptown’s Argyle Street, a multicultural enclave on the cusp of rapid change. The movable project has employed a booth at a farmers market, tables set up on the street, and space in local businesses. [/one_third]
