SEEDFREEDOM DOES: PUBLIC ART
COLLABORATION: BLANK STUDIOS PARK(ING) DAY 2009
About PARK[ing] Day:
PARK[ing] Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.
Anyone can participate in PARK[ing] Day, though it is strictly a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.
San Francisco art collective REBAR first created “PARK(ing)” in 2005 to re-imagine the potential of the metered parking space.
In 2006, in collaboration with TPL, REBAR founded “PARK[ing] Day”: a global exploration of the creative potential of streets. For a review of National PARK[ing] Day 2008 and links to photos, videos, and news stories, visit :
