Public Art: Play around the City

The City of Boston and New Urban Mechanics are working to make waiting for the school bus a more active and engaged time for students.

Here are the details of the project:

My daughter Beatrice and I
created a proposal together titled
"Play and Yay!"

Play and Yay! Is a multi-color, painted sidewalk installation on approximately 520 square feet in front of the Trotter School Playground. Designed as a large-scale coloring book, people of all ages are encouraged to add to the design with chalk and to follow the many interconnected paths. The Mayor’s Mural Crew, my husband artist John Storrow, muralist Jason Boucher, and local community members from the Peace Program at the Pleasant Hill Ministry Baptist Church participated in the painting.
