Grow: Urban palettes + textures

Super excited to be creating another temporary public art installation. This time using spray chalk on an asphalt canvas at Main and Custer as part of this Sunday's Evanston Streets Alive event.

This project brings together my passion for bringing the natural world into urbanscapes and my growing interest in temporary public art. Working with temporary materials offers an ephemeral visual experience for pedestrians, echoing the constant transformation and changes we see in the natural world. 

I've re-worked one of my core visual concepts Grow as a large-scale intersection installation to offer pedestrians a moment of surprise and discovery. Borrowing from the streetscape palette, the installation will be created in weathered whites with pops of safety green and orange.
