From the Center for the Arts in Jackson:
Center for the Arts is soliciting community feedback on design concepts for the Center Park through a temporary website launched today www.jhsandbox.org.
Following the Center’s Community Sandbox workshops last month, landscape architect Walter Hood and his team developed three individual scenarios incorporating community input. The Center posted three design schemes online to collect feedback from those who were unable to attend the workshops. After collecting feedback online over the next ten days, Hood will create a final design, which the Center will present to the Town Council for concept approval this spring.
The Centers master planning process began in August 2013 when the Center hired Frontier Forward to conduct a series of stakeholder interviews with community members. In September, the Center announced a RFQ for a landscape architect, and after a thorough review process, Walter Hood of Hood Design Studio was selected. Hood’s team, consisting of Pierson Land Works and Dynia Architects, hosted a Community Sandbox in January where the public was invited to explore what the space could look like and what role it could play in the Jackson community.
With the help of generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole and an anonymous donor, the Center was able to devote resources to research how best to utilize the green space south of the Centers campus.
