Martin Acres Community Input

In May of 2017 we set out to engage with our community about Art in Martin Acres. A community input event was held at Martin Park and an online survey was distributed to our neighborhood electronically. 

90% of survey respondents indicated that they are in favor of bringing more art to Martin Acres. A few themes emerged during the community input event, and to a lesser extent through the survey: Interactive Art, Functional Art, Unexpected Art, and Community Gathering/Engagement.
