MMD’s Public Art Exhibit for Vision Zero Initiative – Coming Soon

At 2000 14th Street, on the corner of 14th and U, a structure is taking shape.  It is generating a lot of excitement and curiosity. The structure is a new public art exhibit, which is scheduled to open in the next few weeks.  Marshall Moya Design is creating this exhibit, which is part of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Vision Zero Initiative.

An open call for submissions was launched by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, in partnership with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Age-Friendly DC.  Marshall Moya Design and Emzki DC Art Collective were both selected to produce public installations which aim to curb instances of street harassment, and in so doing, leave a lasting impact on DC residents and visitors in order to make our city safe for all.

According to MMD’s Zarela Mosquera, “This project aims to create an experience where people can reflect upon the different interactions that occur in public spaces.” “The arts can empower us to reflect on ourselves and our society,” said Arthur Espinoza, Jr., Executive Director of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Do you have a story about a public interaction (positive or negative) to share?
