2011 Charles Avenue Placemaking Artists

In 2011 the first Friendly Streets Initiative project to created space for neighbors to get involved in the transformation of Charles Avenue into a bike boulevard, with five block parties in Hamline Midway and Frogtown. The initiative got a little creative help via a partnership with Springboard for the Arts, hiring 10 artists to concoct and implement creative placemaking activities at the events.

Artists: Rudy Arnold, Molly Balcom Raleigh, Bridget Beck, Conie Borchardt, Amelia Brown, Talia Galowitch, Robyn Hendrix, Jennifer Johnson, Shakun Maheshwari, and Annabella Miller Sardelis. Full project descriptions from 2011 can be found beginning on page 8 of the Charles Avenue Phase 1 Report.
