Can a splash of paint connect us to a place? Local designers Matt Adams and Nick Turner transformed a blank billboard on Glass Street into an eye-cathcing work of art to prove just that. Ultimately, the goal for the project was to demonstrate how creativity in the public realm drives collaboration and fosters a sense of place. Adams and Turner worked with volunteers to design and fabricate a large-scale stencil for the billboard, at which attendees of the Glass Street LIVE block party threw over 100 water balloons and cups filled with paint. The result was a splashy, vibrant sign that couldn’t be more clear: Glass Street is here.
Engaged over 35 individuals to reclaim a part of Glass Street.
