Unique watershed event rushes to Folk Hall parking lot

October 6, 2011
The south parking lot behind Folk Hall (Lot 47) will be getting a transformation this weekend with your help. Students from the Meyer School of Art, Environmental Akron and the student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers will all collaborate to help create a surface contour map on the south parking lot on Friday and Saturday. The drawing of the map will be a temporary artwork made out of water based and nontoxic paint which will draw attention to the ways in which the parking lot functions.

The supposed “contemporary photography” show almost appeared to be, instead, a strange juxtaposition of other art mediums.
