Figure 3. Cover of Transportation for America’s Creative Placemaking Field Scan (Smart Growth America/ArtPlace America, LLC). Transportation for America is an advocacy organization made up of local, regional, and state leaders focused on transportation reform. Their co-publication of this shared research, and distribution of it across their networks, is one example of an ArtPlace America partner acting as a channel or amplifier to non-arts communities of practice.
Cover includes two photographs and the title “Arts, Culture and Transportation: A Creative Placemaking Field Scan.” Top photograph: birds-eye view of an urban intersection that includes a small triangular green-space with a fountain and an adjacent bright green pedestrian area with tables and umbrellas for shade. Bottom photograph: two children walk across a roofed outdoor space whose pillars bear brightly painted murals.
