March 26, 2011 Public Workshop to Review Ackert Walkway Public Art Studies

A public art workshop was held on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at Parkview Towers in University City. This workshop was part of a graduate course at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis entitled Public Space and City Life — Ackert Walkway Case Study. Students displayed concepts for their vision of a new Ackert Walkway.

Please note: The design concepts are conceptual and are not final or for approval. Over the course of the next year, the community will have the opportunity to discuss the preferred design which may include elements from all of these proposals.
