Event Details

What is ‘Park’ Your Art?

Artists, citizens, and local businesses are invited to transform a metered parking space into public artwork for a day. Use recycled materials and your imagination to build a piece of art worthy of your favorite cause on Friday, October 19.

Rules & Recommendations 

  • Build an art installation in a metered parking space downtown.
  • Use at least 95% reused or repurposed materials to create your installation.
  • Provide an enclosure for your space on the street borders.
  • Allow The Contemporaries to document your space and its use throughout the day.
  • We suggest partnering with an artist or non-profit to create awareness about a cause.
  • Try to incorporate either ground cover, seating, shade, or all three — encourage people to spend time in your space!
  • Utilize your own art, design, performance, and imagination skills in concert with unique materials to create a striking piece.
  • Please do not sell anything from your parking space.
  • Donate, recycle, or reuse your materials after the event, leaving your parking space cleaner and nicer than you found it.

From now until October 19, gather materials to create your artwork. If you are partnering with a non-profit, see if they have any discarded materials that you might use. Do enough work on your piece so that you can assemble it on-site during the two-hour set up time. Please remember that we’ll be outside — consider the breeze when planning your piece.

Arrive at MOCA early for 5:30-7:30 am set up. We’ll direct you to a parking space, feed the meters and capture public reaction/interaction with photography and film throughout the day. If you’re able, consider having a representative on-site to chat with folks as they come by. Be sure to come back downtown and take it all in during a fun Friday night downtown! Be prepared for clean up by midnight. We ask that you donate, recycle, or reuse your materials when finished.
