ART Public art, murals, and arts/crafts events can provide a huge boost to the aesthetics of a project and provide a space for people to be creative and express their desires and the unique aspects of their neighborhood culture. Wherever possible look to partner with local artists and/or arts organizations. Partnering with existing organizations or public institutions (such as schools, libraries, or museums) can be helpful in connecting with groups of artists or young people who want to get involved in creating art for the public space. Such partnerships then support long-term stewardship - people will feel more ownership of and excitement about a public space if they helped shape and design it!
