Hittin' the Streets

Today Mischa and I hit the streets to talk to Central Avenue business owners about participating in the students' Storefront art exhibition. Going into this project, I knew community outreach took a lot of time, but always takes more time that you allocate.

Here's a photo of me talking to Sandy, the owner of Karta Thai. Excited to report that Sandy said yes.

Students at the Heritage Preservation Committee Meeting

Today, Joe, Dante, Asiaya, Ricardo and I gave a presentation to the Heritage Preservation Committee about the work that we have been doing as a part of the Creative Citymaking Project.  Joe presented the findings from the Historic Capstone Study created by Stark Preservation

This was a great way for the students to experience how their work relates to city processes. The HPC oversees the majority of the preservation efforts in the city.
