Signal Tree


Downtown Akron

About the Work
To kick off @PLAY, our Knight Cities initiative for Akron, we created a collaborative mural that celebrates Akron iconography and brought it to Akron's first Signal Tree Festival. Attendees could pick a brush, pick a color, and paint-in the illustration or create their own. Approximately 75% of attendees participated in the event, including kids and adults of all ages. The entire surface was filled in 7 hours. It is currently being refined for public display in a TBD location in Akron.
