2018 is the 40th anniversary of Forecast Public Art, a nonprofit organization that strengthens and advances the field of public art — locally, nationally and internationally — by expanding participation, supporting artists, informing audiences and assisting communities in achieving transformative placemaking. The organization publishes Public Art Review, sharing innovations, ideas and insights to support the design and funding of opportunities for artists to create more work in the public space. As the organization sets to begin its next 40 years, it is affirming its commitment to “a more engaged, diverse, and equitable approach to public art and placemaking.”
In its first issue of 2018, Forecast included a feature on The Walkway, the 2017 exhibit designed by MMD in partnership with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Vision Zero Initiative and the Age-Friendly DC. The feature, included in the “Projects We Love” section of the publication, profiled the project and included quotes by the design team.
“We were delighted to see The Walkway featured in this important issue of Public Art Review, and we applaud the work of the editorial staff for their dedication to community-engaged design,” said MMD’s Michael Marshall. “As an architecture and design firm, we are equally passionate about creating places that enrich our cities.”
