There Goes the Neighborhood (North Park)
Bobby Bray, May 29, 2012
A 4 day event entitled There Goes the Neighborhood! will be engaging the community of North Park Thursday May 31st through Sunday June 3rd. The series of workshops, talks, installations, performances, and tours, includes an event at UCSD and happenings at the San Diego Museum of Art. This will be the 2nd manifestation of There Goes the Neighborhood, having occurred once before in 2010.
One of the workshops will take place in the North Park Theater's parking lot, focusing on the city project aimed at converting the lot into a mini-park. Landscape specialists, architects, artists, and the community will explore potential usages of the space. Another event is centered on a dinner atop the Landis Street overpass, where discussions about the widening of the 805 freeway (among other developments) are to take place.
