[ARCHIVED] Proposed Art Lot Project

The Avondale Arts Alliance in collaboration with the City of Avondale Estates, artists, local citizens, and businesses are planning to create a temporary city park in an underutilized space fronting North Avondale Road near the Tudor Village Building.

The concept is taking currently unused land and turning it into a pop-up art park. The vision is to create a temporary public space where locals and visitors can explore a creative experience that would involve sculptures and visual art installations, green walls, and a performance space. It could also be used for many other daily uses from picnicking to using the space for a coffee break.

The project aims to support and increase pedestrian safety, neighborhood identity, and beautification along the busy four-lane corridor of North Avondale Road. Activating this area of the downtown will help shape and define plans for a more permanent future development investment by the City. The project is intended to be a public experiment for the City, supported by City funding, to work with local communities and organization to temporarily test new ideas in the public realm.
