PARK(ing) Day 2011 is Friday, September 16

Community leaders Meredith Joy, Mike Reed and Jung Kim have partnered with the Columbus College of Art and Design to sponsor a CCAD student art competition for PARK(ing) Day 2011 (Friday, September 16).

PARK(ing) Day is an annual, worldwide event that inspires city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has grown from a single project in San Francisco to an international DIY community event.

For the competition, first prize for the best PARK(ing) space is $400. Second prize is $200. (read less)
