Fulton Favorites, Minneapolis, MN
This was a community project to have areas residents design, make and display over 150 lawn signs in their front yards to delineate Fulton Neighborhood and build community spirit. I received a grant from the Fulton Neighborhood Art Committee to fund this project. I taught about ten workshops at the parks, block parties, and school daycares to residents of all ages. Each participant sketched and transformed their design into colorful vinyl shapes, which were adhered to a white, weatherproof sign pre-printed with the phrase “Fulton Favorites.” The loose theme was: depict your favorite aspect of your neighborhood. Many signs are on display year-round since the launch of the project in 2009!
