Culliton Park Art
Art integrated into the landscape of Culltion Park (formerly called Farnum Park) with an emphasis on stormwater management and community outreach.
Artist Matthew Geller is working with RGS Associates to incorporate art into the new landscape. In conjunction with Geller, Salina Almanzar is working to facilitate creative and collaborative community meetings that envision the future of the Culliton Park neighborhood and create a sense of ownership in the redeveloped park. Construction is expected to start in the spring.
The last five weeks Culliton Park has been the site of pop-up art making, led by artist Salina Almanzar. The pop-ups, called Art Pop, have been a way for neighbors to engage with the history of Culliton Park and what they envision the future of the park to be. The ark making events included activities such as, painting masks, painting wooden panels, coloring and drawing, and zine making.
Art Pop followed Almanzar’s project, “Love Notes for a Park,” where neighbors can write a note to Culliton park and tie it onto the fence in a rapidly growing heart. Neighbors continue to add notes to the park at each Art Pop event.
