Bringing back community space

Bringing back community space

A group of volunteers have painted the intersection at Fern Street and Tamarind. It’s a joint effort by The Knight Foundation, StreetPlans, Dreyfoos School of the Arts, the City of West Palm Beach, and the Downtown Development Authority.

The ‘Intersection Repair’ project is a creative means to “purpose a neighborhood street intersection as a community space.”

Who? Working with the Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Visual Arts Department students were invited to participate as teams to create proposals for the first Intersection Repair to be painted in the city.

Why? The main objective of this project will be to demonstrate the impact that this creative intervention Intersection Repair model can have on the community. It is intended to draw attention to the context of this intersection and to place emphasis on the routes of other non-auto oriented forms of transportation: walking, bicycling, and public transit.
