The Village at Market Creek Art + Design Plan
The Village at Market Creek Art + Design Plan provides residents, community partners, developers, and funders with the vision for an arts and culture district in southeastern San Diego that was identified through a nine-month community process in 2012. The plan outlines common themes that public art in The Village should express, as well as possible art forms and priority locations. The Art + Design Plan also includes design guidelines for future development in The Village, as well as an implementation strategy and recommendations for supporting this vision.
This Executive Summary serves as an overview of the larger Art + Design Plan, which will be available in November 2012.
