Art has the power to break down barriers and allow for expression.
PACE (Public Art Community Engagement), pairs artists with neighbors to define future public art projects that fit wants, needs, and desires of the people that will experience it the most, through art-making-centered conversations. PACE artists foster deeper connections within the community to create more meaningful works of public art with the people for whom it matters most.
Portraits of Culliton Park Neighbors is part of Culliton Park Art, a larger collaborative project, that aims to bring together community members who are passionate about and seek a new vision for Culliton park.
