Public Place Interpretive Signage

MAKING GOWANUS - a streetside exhibit and pamphlet - interpret the dynamic processes that have formed the landscape of the Gowanus Canal, currently facing significant change through Superfund remediation, long-term gentrification and rising sea levels.  This exhibit communicates the beauty and complex history of the Canal in order to enrich the community’s appreciation for the ground beneath their feet, the productive landscapes that have preceded them, and their potential role in determining the neighborhood’s future.
