Join MAPC and Transportation for America for an exciting workshop exploring the nuts and bolts of integrating art into transportation projects. The workshop will focus on how art can enhance rail corridors, trails and streets.

Learn from exemplary projects from greater Boston and from across the country, learn the right questions to ask as you set out to create a project that draws from your local assets and context, and leave with a draft plan of action for incorporating art into your transportation project!
