A.R.T.S. Clean Up Day!
Help Roosevelt Row launch the A.R.T.S. Project!
A.R.T.S., Adaptive Reuse of Temporary Space, is a dirt lot activation program that addresses the blight of vacant urban space. Roosevelt Row is working on temporary activation projects for dirt lots in the neighborhood including arts markets, community gardens, public art projects, cultural fairs including science and sustainability, outdoor film space, and concerts.
SATURDAY MARCH 12, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Meet in the dirt lot at 408 E Roosevelt St. We’ll pick up garbage, remove debris, spread mulch donated from local landscaping companies, plant posts, & enjoy the sunset. Gloves, tools, water, and snacks will be provided. Wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes or boots, and bring your own water bottle/canteen to refill onsite.
Tell us you’re coming by calling (602) 475 2661, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or just show up!
