Spain Street Park Installation and #IAMMIDCITY Educational Program (2016)
Funded by the William Edwin Montan Charitable Trust, 2191 Spain Street in Mid City
Thriving communities need public space. In spring 2016, Mid City Studio designed an IAMMIDCITY curriculum for 3rd grade students at The Dufrocq School and Bernard Terrace Elementary. Students learned about the area's history, geography, and culture before making maps, laying out timelines, and taking photos to document how they see Mid City. The students' photos are on display in a public exhibit in Spain Street Park at 2191 Spain Street.
The curriculum and exhibit were funded by the William Edwin Montan Charitable Trust and made possible through support from the Mid City Redevelopment Alliance, East Baton Rouge Public Schools, Lettermans Blueprint and Supply, BREC, Brewhaha Inc., and Garden District Nursery.
