From our friends at the Palo Alto Public Art Program:

Open Call to Geeks, Inventors, Innovative Thinkers, Artists, and Makers!

For one weekend in June 2017, we will temporarily reframe the City of Palo Alto as a laboratory for urban interventions and creative placemaking while engaging commuters, residents, students and visitors in dialogue to shape the future of the downtown corridor.
