Traffic control boxes hardly catch your eye at a stoplight. That will soon change in Tallahassee. The City of Tallahassee and Knight Creative Communities Institute is piloting an art of the box project.
The latest project of the Knight Creative Communities Institute seeks to give several of the Capital City's graffiti-scarred traffic control boxes an aesthetic makeover. Its objective is to bring beauty to some of Tallahassee's busiest intersections.
The Knight Creative Communities Institute is bringing new public art to Tallahassee, transforming traffic boxes. KCCI is putting out a call to local artists to submit their work to be featured around the City.
Bicycles are in high demand in Tallahassee as more people are socially distancing and looking to stay healthy. KCCI's 2020 Bicycle Community Catalyst team created a traveling bike rack to raise awareness of Leon County's trails and cycling features.
The 2020 KCCI Community Catalyst team’s placemaking project for 2020 is creating a local Bicycle Park. To create a park that the community would like and use, the team has created the Bicycle Park Survey.
Congratulations to these six high-achieving women to watch for being selected to the 2020 KCCI Community Catalyst class: Theresa Bender, Tarsha Davis, Suzannah Grasel, Molly Lord, Jessica Sorenson, and Callie Watson. Read on page 65.
Placemaking efforts are key to continuing the improvement of Tallahassee's quality of life and local connectivity. KCCI’s Placemaking Week illustrates the opportunities for innovative activities that can strengthen sense of place in our community.
