Street Marker

exploring new ways to mark streets for COVID response and beyond

Street Marker is a new program that experiments with ways to mark streets, starting with a custom tool kit that allows communities to create striking patterns for COVID distancing, colorful communal murals, and more. The tools encourage New Yorkers to draw together, while helping them remain safely apart. We’ve also added teaching artists and staff to help involve passersby and elevate the experience. We’re expanding Street Marker to more neighborhoods in 2021. Contact us to get involved.
