The NEA grant will support the Maryland Parkway Public Art and Design Plan. The team partners and members of the community will identify spaces for plazas, landscapes, and artwork, as well as recommend design elements that will enhance the Regional Transit Commission's plan for light rail or bus rapid transit along the parkway. Clark County, Urban Land Institute, Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, City of Las Vegas Cultural Affairs, and additional partners will work together to select a multi-disciplinary consultant team to lead community engagement and development of a public art and design plan. Once completed, the project will enhance the new transit corridor that connects downtown Las Vegas with unincorporated Clark County. The Maryland Parkway corridor encompasses residential, commercial, and institutional neighborhoods with a surrounding area inhabited by 55,000 residents, 55% of whom are minorities.
