Project Context

Listed below and referred to on the accompanying map, you will see that each site has its own physical characteristics and is influenced by the communities it joins and populations it brings into the area.

 


 

Historical Markers

 

Artists should propose concepts for markers that honor the people and events that have had an important impact on the neighborhood and beyond.  Please refer to the Moreland History section of this website for more information about significant historic locations, people and events. Artists are urged to go beyond the standard or typical historical marker design and be creative in your approach, and develop concepts that are unique in the way they reflect the historical significance of the neighborhood. Historical markers can be located anywhere in the neighborhood.
