In the final part of the series on “Art, Design and the Urban Environment,” panelists will discuss the construction of the Second Avenue Subway as a starting point for a conversation on transportation infrastructure. How can urban design and public art transform street-level spaces to be more functional, and beautify below-ground levels on a grand scale?

Co-organized by the National Academy and CIVITAS, Art, Design and the Urban Environment is a discussion series that explores how artists and architects—as well as activists, grassroots organizers, scientists, urban planners, and city agencies—can work together to improve urban environments in meaningful ways.
Themed topics, related to local issues facing the Upper East Side and East Harlem communities, serve as a catalyst for an interdisciplinary conversation that addresses concerns facing the New York community at large.
