Revitalize This!

Rochester, N.Y.'s neighborhood revitalization project will create more open spaces and gathering areas.

Public art, lighting, artistic seating, wayfinding kiosks, and unique interactive sidewalks in Rochester are designed to attract and reatain knowledge-based workers and build on city's tourism industry.

In a workshop orchestrated by subconsultant Studio William Cochran, more than 120 residents and business owners collaborated in teams of eight to 10 people using custom-designed game boards that showed images of various types of art. The red and opaque "gem" clusters represent the budget for that particular element.

The local and national artists who contributed to ArtWalk 1 were encouraged to consider Rochester's infrastructure assets as potential canvases
