In October 2019, Bloomberg Associates and Street Plans released the Asphalt Art Guide. The Guide is a free resource for cities looking to transform their streets and public spaces with art. It features over two dozen case studies highlighting successful plaza and roadway art activations around the world, and a how-to section for cities interested in undertaking their own projects.
The guide draws on the experience of these successful projects and addresses topics like community involvement, liability concerns, design development, materials, and project implementation. The best practices offered in this guide provide the necessary insight and advice that will enable project teams to ultimately improve street safety, revitalize public spaces, and bring communities together through asphalt art.
