CHANGING VIEWS | Designing Youngstown’s Future

changingviews

The John J McDonough Museum of Art, Youngstown State University’s Center for Contemporary Art, will become a hub for exploring exciting possibilities for imagining public space in the city with you. Please join us at the Museum on June 10th for the opening reception from 6-8 PM. The exhibition will be on view through July 22nd.

CHANGING VIEWS | Designing Youngstown’s Future is a collaboration of regional universities with the citizens of Youngstown. Working with you, we are endeavoring to spark revitalization by demonstrating the potential for reuse and redesign in the area. The resulting projects will allow residents and businesses to see a future that otherwise might not be imagined. Youngstown State University’s Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) teamed up with students and faculty from Kent State University’s (KSU) College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) and KSU’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC). The exhibition highlights planning and design work that has taken place over the past year between economic development professionals at YSU and City of Youngstown residents along with the design expertise of KSU’s CAED and CUDC students.
