University District Arts & Character Plan

Español →

The University District Arts & Character Plan will develop a strategy for the University District to showcase and celebrate its unique character and culture through public art, placemaking, and creative projects. The planning process will incorporate public engagement and analysis of the current and past conditions of the neighborhood. Throughout the process, the public will be asked to contribute their stories from the neighborhood at specific workshops that focus on the history, culture, music, performing arts, and visual arts of the area.

The planning process will not be static. Ideas for creative projects will be collected from the public that will be implemented as a series of artistic installations throughout the planning process. These pieces of art will demonstrate how public art and placemaking can help to enhance the future of the neighborhood. 

How should we tell the story of the University District?

Tactical Art Installations
During the public input phase, five temporary/tactical art installations will be placed throughout University District neighborhoods.
