Pocket Utopia is pleased to present it’s second neighborhood public art project: Visionary Crosswalks by artist Graham Coreil-Allen. Presented in-situ, Visionary Crosswalks will be a series of interactive crosswalk installations throughout Bushwick.

Graham Coreil-Allen will create five temporary “crosswalks” demonstrating some of the casual paths that pedestrians take when navigating various intersections in the northwest section of Bushwick. Coreil-Allen will also install interactive posters around the crosswalk sites and other locations. The posters will consist of a neighborhood map with a detail of particular intersections, and will posit this question: “How did you get here?” and “How did you cross the street?”. Each map will also include a marking pen so that passers-by may answer the questions. Coreil-Allen will periodically collect these maps and use the participants responses as plans for installing additional crosswalks.

As part of Pocket Utopia’s ongoing “Social Saturday” series, Coreil-Allen will screen a video documenting the crosswalk footage on May 24th from 4:00 pm. The “Visionary Crosswalks Social Saturday” will be a fun and casual opportunity to watch videos, hang-out, and foster discourse on the pedestrian experience in Bushwick.

Interested participants can find maps and installation locations for Visionary Crosswalks at Pocket Utopia.

Pocket Utopia is an away-from center, off-center, exhibition, salon and social space run by artist Austin Thomas.
