Graham Projects is a Baltimore-based creative agency making cities more inclusive and livable through public art and civic engagement. Building on his background in public art, urban planning, and neighborhood advocacy, Public Artist and Creative Director Graham Coreil-Allen produces participatory projects and leads social initiatives in the service of pedestrians and places. As an artist, Coreil-Allen collaborates with neighbors to interpret and activate public space through placemaking projects for pedestrian safety and play, interactive mapping, and New Public Sites walking tours. His projects range from colorful pavement designs and creative outdoor signage to interactive sculptures and LED lighting installations. As an organizer he leverages multimedia strategies for meaningful impact, including community engagement, community-based design, storytelling campaigns, participatory neighborhood walks, and public advocacy.
Since founding Graham Projects in 2005, Coreil-Allen has expanded his creative work to include a comprehensive array of built, programmatic, design, and engagement strategies. Through Graham Projects, Coreil-Allen has reached hundreds of thousands of participants through radical New Public Sites walking tours led in cities across the country and numerous public art installations, including viral-sensation Hopscotch Crosswalks, Dancing Forest and Choose Your Own Adventure at Artscape, and Sun Stomp at Light City Baltimore. Coreil-Allen’s work has been featured in numerous exhibits and media outlets including the American Pavilion in the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale and a special episode of the hit podcast 99% Invisible.
