2012

The City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, with the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation, Phoenix Center for the Arts, and Arizona State University Art Museum, will use their Our Town grant on the Cultural Connections project, a series of temporary public art installations and free public art events in currently vacant or underutilized spaces in the Roosevelt Row Arts District, located downtown near the a new light rail stop that opened in 2008. Project activities will include establishing pedestrian connections between existing cultural facilities and the new light rail corridor. The project is expected to reinforce the district's identity by improving the perception of safety, bringing artwork to the street, and creating connections and access to established institutions.
