The initiative

The ‘Neighborhood 100’ is a tactical art piece commissioned for the University District Arts & Character Plan and is one of four temporary projects. Each piece will test concepts and ideas for long-term public art and placemaking projects for the University District. A steering committee of community leaders and artists issued a request for proposals in August 2016. It invited local artists to submit their ideas for the creation of 100 small objects. These objects would then be distributed and displayed throughout the University District. "Your dream is my memory" was chosen as the selected project. Community members are invited to react and give feedback on the concept so that it can inform future art installations.
