Mini-Mart City Park

Huge thanks to SuttonBeresCuller to for inviting Re+Vision and the Upward Bound crew out to Georgetown to learn about their newest public sculpture, Mini-Mart City Park. It is a total work in progress as they just got the site. Their plan is to return this "blighted piece of ubiquitous architecture to nature and the public sphere". It is a perfect example for us - artists acting as change makers in their urban landscape. The visit and following discussion left quite an impression as we begin thinking about our own design proposals. Billy said it was "probably his favorite field trip so far" which is a lot to say after all the adventures we have been over the last three weeks!!
