Join CNU IL & AIA Chicago to help ‘Brighten’ the Sunnyside Avenue Pedestrian Mall in Uptown!
On Thursday, August 27th, CNU Illinois & AIA Chicago will be working with the Sunnyside Mall Committee to install a series of simple, low cost, tactical interventions in Sunnyside Mall - a two block-long pedestrian plaza on Sunnyside Avenue, between Beacon Street and Magnolia Avenue in Uptown’s Sheridan Park neighborhood.
Designed to help enliven the space, the interventions will serve as pilot projects, providing the neighborhood organization and local community members with a valuable opportunity to test some creative ideas before carrying out more permanent installations.
The event will focus on dynamic, low tech improvements that might include chalking patterns on the street, adding bright colors with streamers and tree tape, and hanging painted bird feeders, as examples. Attendees should dress appropriately for working with various medias.
