Culliton Park Art
Art integrated into the landscape of Culliton 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.
Culliton Park has been the site of pop-up arts-and-crafts, led by artist Salina Almanzar. Art Pop has been a way for neighbors to engage with the history of Culliton Park and what they envision the future of the park to be. Crafts included painting masks, painting wooden panels, coloring and drawing, and zine making.
Love Notes To A Park
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.
LIKE WATER: Community Zine
Reflecting on community history and resilience using water as a metaphor. Community members created pages for a collaborative zine which will be printed and handed out to the community and city officials in the Fall.
Portraits of Culliton Park Neighbors
Portraits of community residents and phrases that define the neighborhood were added to a wall on Water Street. A way to recognize the people that leave imprints, and an opportunity to question how you can contribute to your space.
