Reclaim Market Street! Exhibition Opening
Tuesday September 6th, 6:00-8:00pm
SPUR, 654 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
In 2015, Market Street will be remade as the culmination of a four-year public process called the Better Market Street Project. Reclaim Market Street!, created by the Studio for Urban Projects, augments this ongoing community program by staging a series of interventions that engage the public in changing the street. Accompanying these events is an exhibition at the San Francisco Planning + Urban Research Association (SPUR) that provides context for these pilot projects by highlighting the many ways in which cities, nationally and internationally, are engaged in reimagining their public spaces through experimental urban planning. Believing that artists can be provocative agents in helping us to reimagine our cities, the Studio for Urban Projects—in collaboration with artists, activists, designers and city officials—has created this project as a way of helping us to claim Market Street in this crucial moment.
