21, 2018/ PARK(ing) Day: Jackson Hole Public Art sponsors its annual PARK(ing) Day. PARK(ing) Day is a grassroots event that happens annually across the world on the same Friday in September. Up to 10 parking spaces in Town Square will be re-purposed that day, with the public art group converting the spots usually designated for vehicles into art and park installations that offer alternative use of space.
Jackson Hole Public Art celebrates PARK(ing) Day on September 21st from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm in downtown Jackson. PARKing Day is a worldwide event where artists, designers, and citizens transform parking spots into temporary public parks. PARKing Day helps us imagine public space for people instead of cars and highlights the inspiring work of local designers and artists to increase pedestrian vitality in the downtown.
This year’s PARKing Day participants include:
KHOL, Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing, GYDE Architects and New West Building Company, Jorgensen Engineering, Carney Logan Burke Architects, Farmer Payne Architects, Kilmain Painting, Bland Hoke, and Bronwyn Minton
We are very excited about the diversely talented participants who will be transforming our downtown for one day. Maps will be available at each location. PARKing Day is free and open for all to experience.
