Public Art: Play around the City

In 2018, The City of Boston and New Urban Mechanics were 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! was 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 were encouraged to add to the design with chalk and to follow the many interconnected paths.
