Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Artomatic starts Friday

Artomatic, the free-form temporary arts space that lasts for about one month, located in spaces around the area that are about to be demolished or not quite ready for leasing, is launching again this Friday, once again in Crystal City, in Arlington, Virginia, at 1851 S. Bell Street.

(Next time, I might get it together to do a display on cultural planning and discipline specific arts planning, the development of arts districts, etc.  I think the opportunity to push discourse forward on arts policy isn't taken up by the Artscape initiative, and it's a lost opportunity.  Although maybe there is still time to do a forum on the topic as part of the overall program.)
