Block by Block debuts at The Hall

On September 30, City leaders and non-profit and arts communities came together to celebrate the diversity and unique identity of the Central Market neighborhood through a number of groundbreaking programs designed to spark the imagination and build community through the arts and civic innovation. The event featured “flip the switch” on Light Up Central Market, a series of six interactive art projects including Block by Block, the latest Living Innovation Zone (LIZ), that will illuminate Market Street between Fifth and Seventh Streets. Also debuting that evening was the Central Market Showcase, a selection of prototypes that inspired connection and served their communities during the Market Street Prototyping Festival in April 2015. See below for photos from the event. Special thanks to The Hall for hosting the event! [AFG_gallery id=’13’] More photos »
