Walking Tour: Art, Ecology, & Spatial Justice in Flushing Meadows Corona Park

May 13, 2018
12:30  -  2:00
The Panorama of the City of New York, Queens Museum

This tour will explore the potential for inclusive approaches to community decision-making in parks planning, and the role of creative interventions. Through this signature Queens site—a World’s Fairground turned park and testament to Jetsons-era optimism—we will examine the history of civic green spaces with a look at mega events, urban renewal, privatization, and DIY reclamation. Additionally, we will discuss the design process for park improvements and the mechanisms by which they are funded.
