Prepping Powell Street
Posted on June 21, 2011 2:05 PM
It’s morning on Powell Street, and work has officially commenced to prepare for installation. First up, city workers removed the parking meters on both sides of the street. The project is eliminating the parking lanes to give more space to pedestrians. And having a few less obstacles on the sidewalks isn’t bad, either.
Next, Scott Atthowe and his team from Atthowe Fine Art Services
set about meticulously marking the street and mapping out the
layout to the specifications of the design blueprints. Atthowe has
the unenviable task of making it all happen, from assembly to
construction and installation. When it comes to unconventional
projects like this, these guys are the experts, with over 30 years
of experience in art and major exhibition installations for
galleries, museums and public spaces around the world.
