Prince George's County Cultural Arts Study: Arts and Community Connectivity
Thursday, April 8, 2021
Transportation networks are ideal sites for creative projects. From art in subway stations to artistically designed crosswalks, manhole covers, and bus shelter designs, arts can help improve accessibility, safety, and make the environment more inviting to users. Pedestrian and cycling trails offer additional opportunities for creativity, including public art, landscape design, and wayfinding. Art can also reduce barriers in transit stations, integrating creative wayfinding symbols to ease congestion and help direct passengers. This meeting will examine how arts and culture can improve the County’s connectivity and discuss some barriers or challenges for improvements.
