Park[ing] Day is a world-wide public art event created by Rebar, an SF design group that helps people to rethink public space. For more info on this great event, visit http://parkingday.org/
As registered participants, we’ll be building a park in some parking spaces (with ‘rent’ paid in full, of course) while others do the same all over the planet. Park[ing] Day is FREE and open to the public. Ours is co-sponsored by the City of Berkeley Department of Public Works, City of Berkeley Civic Arts Commission, Shawl-Anderson Dance Center and Berkeley High School’s Arts and Humanities Academy Program.
