Art Daily: studio + museum + market
arc393 vertical studio | fall 2013 | instructor: Matt Fajkus
Employing public space as its connective tissue, this project unites an outsider art museum, art therapy program, and flea market through the shared experience of art. A public zone crosses the site in a "T" formation linking the street to the site's interior, and providing a framework around which the three programs interweave and connect. Combining these programs provides the opportunity for an unlikely population to experience art, and also facilitates the introduction of art therapy patients back into the public realm. Additionally, by activating the public space with food trucks and flea market stalls, visitors have the opportunity to experience art on a daily basis rather than as a special occasion.
